    hi Pankaj,

    well, this is a very general question. perhaps you could specify a little more.

    in general i would see no difference regarding the end user sitting in front of his pc using sapgui.

    as far as i know all server side sap software is available for aix and windows (and many more).

    for administration on the other hand there is of course lots of difference. AIX is a UNIX operating system running on special hardware with power processors. it offers quit extensive virtualisation abilities using so called LPARs and supports real big number of CPUs and large RAM. Windows is a completly differnet operating system running mostly on x86/amd64 hardware.

    therefore you should also consider what know-how is available in your system administration.

    not shure if that is partly answering your question ...

    btw. if you are going forward with AIX you should perhaps consider switching oracle with db2. so you have a consistent IBM based landscape. also to me, sap and db2 seem to "like" each other more than sap and oracle 😉
