Uses and System Features
Once the "Mozilla.base.rte" file is successfully installed or the user has used the one export command (shown above) to use AIX with Firefox, it is now time for the user to start using the free AIX Toolboxes for Linux Applications (ATLA).
AIX contains a wide variety of software; for example, there are development tools as well as open source packages that are desirable. In addition, it runs Gnome and KDE (Desktop Environments), GNU base utilities, guile, python, tcl/tk, rep-gtk (Programming Languages), system utilities, graphic applications, and more. For instance, the AIX-rpm contains shared libraries (ncurses, readline, libtiff, libpng, libjpeg, slang, fnlib, db, gtk+, qt) and system shells (bash, tcsh, zsh). AIX also supports a wide variety of hardware platforms and servers too.
As pointed out by Jaqui Lynch, a technical editor for IBM Systems Magazine, "[AIX] features a management tool (SMIT) that let you use menus to configure and control the system, a logical volume manager (LVM), a dynamic kernel, journalized file system (JFS) and a central configuration database called the Object Data Manager (ODM)."
