Are the Unixes that are proprietary dead or dying:

* AIX - IBM tout Linux these days

* HP-UX - HP tout Linux / Windows these days

* Solaris - Is moving towards going Open Source

* IRIX - is dead?

* DEC UNIX - is dead?

* SCO's offerings - is dead?

Apart from Sun's Solaris, do any of the proprietary Unixes have enough 
backing to keep them going, in terms of market share? Do they have 
enough capital to remain competitive with each other, with Microsoft and 
with the open source offerings?

I tender they don't. I could be wrong...
