	You name it, I've probably played with it... AIX, HPUX, Solaris,
SCO, NextStep, Coherent, Tru64, Irix, Unixware, PyramidOS, NCR Unix...
probably a few more that I've managed to forget. When you start working
with commercial UN*X you really start to realize just how much you take
for granted with free software. Things like a useable shell, compilers,
strong community support and useful documentation just for starters. But
once you've installed a pile of GNU/Free Software, most of the commercial
stuff feels just fine.
