I'm in the process of migrating a couple of AIX 5.3 systems over to AIX 7 and is almost impressed of how little has changed between those. So by all means, if your vendors suggest that you switch to AIX I think you should do it. Would love to get my hands on some POWER8 hardware though.

- More than half of my companies preferred vendor applications will not run on systemd (some of which will never support it)

Then those apps will effectively not support GNU/Linux going forward since more or less everyone is jumping on the Systemd bandwagon.

- Majority of in-house scripts need to be rewritten

I don't know about how you write scripts, but I find it amazing that a majority of them has to be rewritten. What are you guys doing really? But if this really is such a problem all I can say is that you should really look into making abstraction layers, because whatever you're doing is so low-level it's going to break no matter what changes.

The growing list of complaints are raising flags in my company so much so that we are looking at outright dumping Redhat and we have been a dedicated Redhat Enterprise customer since 1997. RHEL7 has ZERO TCO for everyone I've spoken with... Retraining, retooling, reconfiguring and reorganizing are absurd.

So, what alternative are you looking at?

OK, so you have to learn Systemd. But what is it that you can't do anymore? If you want ext4 then use ext4. If you want MySQL then use MySQL. If you want the old network interface names then use them, it's just a kernel parameter you pass with grub. And everything is now in /usr? Big deal. If you want GNOME 2 then sorry, things changes; we don't have GNOME 1 anymore either. Things change. New features come, old features go. That's how it is. Learn to live with it!
