Before the results a few observations:
Questions: How many of these features are originally in the AT&T UNIX 5.2 and 5.3 from which AIX was developed?
Answer: None of them as they are all IBM improvements.
Question: Which are long-term AIX features (i.e excluding feature introduced with AIX 6 and 7)?

And the Winners from 178 Voters with 1158 Votes cast are ...
Clearly, it is hard for new features to compete with the old established favourites but I think these are pretty high rankings for the new features.
Next time!! we might ask what are the favourites out of the big new features introduced in the past 5 or 10 years. I would guess PowerVC, Enterprise Pools and Live Kernel Update would be the winners but also AIX Flash Cache and Shared Storage Pools would feature strongly too.
