    I went with Ubuntu but mostly I'm agnostic for the most part. I'm a programmer and have worked with many Unices over the years. I like Linux and Ubuntu seems stable easy enough to work with.

    I didn't see AIX there - not that would've picked it - I don't suppose it's really a Linux distro. It's never been clear to me just what AIX's relationship to Linux is but a number of years back when I was working a lot on AIX IBM began to talk about Linux AIX. I thought they may have gone to the Linux kernel but all I can find on it now is what they call "Linux affinity". 10 years ago Solaris, AIX at al had some advantages over Linux and FreeBSD but I don't see that anymore.
