Well, IBM has AIX, a very solid and stable version of unix which works really
well. SCO has become very popular lately and using SCO Unix will turn you into
the most popular guy on this list. Then there is Irix, made by SGI. HP actually has
several unix versions Tru64, HP-UX, Tandem Unix, Ultrix, Apollo Unix and some
more exotic operating systems like OpenVMS, MPE, Guardian and alike. If you go with HP,
I do advise you to stick with HP-UX.
