Does IBM have AIX ported and avaliable for the x86 architecture? (Such as Sun's Solaris X-86?)

Thanks for any help,
Chuck

I'm told that very early versions (e.g. 1.2) were available for PS/2.  However, current versions require a POWER, POWER2, or PowerPC architecture.
Commented:
No,

   IBM never planed to port AIX to the x86 architecture. And I don't think they have any plan in the future. For more information take a look at http://www.ibm.com
