Best Unix?

I'm biased. In truth, I don't like HP-UX. From my experience, True64 is the 
best of the commercial Unixes (although I have not used AIX).
I have used Solaris (both on Sparc and on Intel). I was working for HP at 
Raytheon a few years ago where I worked on HP-UX on both workstations and 
large server systems. I also worked on Tru64 Unix (previously Digital Unix 
previously OSF/1) since before it was released. And I have worked on Ultrix 
(not very good), FreeBSD, Irix, Xenix(awful typical Microsoft product), 
Cadmus(pure System V on Motorola 68K), SunOS(the BSD version) and a few 

But, much is a matter of personal preference and opinion.
