Considering Linux has strong IBM support, it is interesting that folks hadn't gone further to add more AIX strong points, like the ability to determine which section of a hard disk to place data (e.g. Outer edge). It is a nice feature when performance tuning. I'd be glad to find out that Linux now supports this.
