Not unless you have plans.  When I was an IBM employee, they would
not change the license, and so it's impossible to ship a CDROM
where it's the boot FS, or boxes on which it is the boot FS, and
still have it be legal, because of the license conflicts.

I fought this for about a year within IBM, before I gave up.

No, it's not.  The Linux JFS is derived from the OS/2 JFS code, not
the good AIX JFS code.
