When IBM consolidated its midrange server platform in 2008, it was perceived largely as a convergence of the System i and System p, or AIX, operating systems onto a single hardware platform. The fact that Power Systems would also run Linux appeared as a somewhat gratuitous concession to the growing worldwide interest in open-source software, a trend that was a polar opposite to IBM's traditional proprietary architectures.
