AIX Desktop Applications
AIX used to have a fairly large desktop following (it started out as a desktop operating system after all). However as time has went on, AIX closed source applications, open source applications, compiling information, installation information etc, gets lost as time progresses and fewer people give it attention. This page attempts to correct that by listing closed source applications, all of the free open source applications for download, as well as outlining the dependencies.

When you're installing the packages, you can either do it through SMIT or even through the graphical web manager and point to a CD-ROM or package(s) that you've downloaded. You don't actually have to mount the CD-ROM when you're using the graphical System Manager because it's intelligent enough to look there (you only ever have to 'mount' a CD-ROM in AIX under unique circumstances but generally it's best to ignore).
Downloads section is still being built--additional applications need to be compiled etc. Then once all of that is done I can publish what's possible. Any paid-for software (like Adobe FrameMaker) I won't be able to.
