I have one kicking around and I find it's not good enough for OS/2.
You need a real 386/486 to run AIX. An SX won't cut it.
You can run supposedly AIX 1.x on ISA PCs, but they have to be 100%
IBM compatible, and AIX doesn't support any non-MCA network cards.
This is a nonsense, you can of course run AIX PS/2 on 386sx sytem. I do in fact, it runs rather happily on my PS/2 Model 65sx, which is 386SX-based. There's no difference between 386SX and DX from the operating system's point of view.
AIX PS/2 with the latest patches should run on non-MCA PC hardware, but I don't think it's worth the energy one would have to invest in such thing. Even getting it to run on some IBM MCA hardware is almost impossible - right now I'm trying to run it on my 76i with no success so far
