Well, AIX anyway.

"Our applications will leverage the performance capabilities in 
pSeries/AIX architecture to produce, and support, new global indexes and 
averages to create new revenue streams. IBM has provided our business 
with professional expertise and exceptional service, a hardware platform 
that efficiently meets our current needs and provides us with the 
scalability to match our rapid growth. I am confident that the IBM 
platform will be an integral part of our business unit's success going 
forward," said Petronella."

It doesn't appear that IBM pushes linux when they can sell AIX instead. 
Of course they are in the best postion to know.
