Are you an AIX person or a POWER7 person?

Warning: touchy feely comment coming up!
I have always found it odd that IBM markets the Hardware = POWER7 a lot and very little marketing on the Operating System = AIX7. Personally, I have more good feelings and positive vibes for AIX operating system because I log in to every day and use it for hours than I do for the POWER hardware running it. I very rarely go to the machine room and hug the machine!
If IBM offered AIX logo pin badge, AIX stickers, AIX mug at a reasonable cost - would you buy one?
Would you fill in a 10 minute questionnaire to help IBM work out which parts of AIX you actually use a lot and suggest any AIX improvements if we offered a free sticker in the post?
I ask this as I often get asked questions like: What percentage of customers run Workload Partition? To which the answer is IBM does not know because it is free with AIX - no one tell IBM when they start using these features. Same goes forother stuff like Shared Storage Pools, aixpert command, Roll Based Access Control and 30 others.
No promises at the moment - just testing the water.
