Well, often there are application layers on x86 talking to the Oracle or Db2 database on AIX. To just load a Redhat lpar on the often unused cpu resources on the same box and run the .NET application would be quite cool, don't you think?
Well, the whole thread is about support of .NET on AIX... So there should be demand once the technology is available.
As Andrey mentioned, we need the framework available on ppc64le (AIX & Linux) for the ISVs to be at least able to move to Power, should they want/need to.

What OS is the most used one for new projects (on Power) ?Why AIX and not Linux where we have already MONO (the .NET for Linux).What will be the benefit to use AIX in place of Ubuntu for ppc64le for example ?Best regards,Georgi
