Not all versions but all currently supported versions is what
I meant. So for AIX, it's 6.1, 5.3, and 5.2, for HP-UX, it's
11.31, 11.22, 11.11, and 11.00, for Solaris it's 10, 9, 8,
and 7. It's more complicated for open source systems like
BSD and especially Linux because they don't really have the
concept of supported or unsupported releases and in the case
of Linux because of all the different distros floating around
out there. Oh, and for Windows, it's probably Vista, XP, and
Server 2003.
