HPUX is not too common these days but it works like a charm.
we have a couple of large IA64 servers running on HPUX at a major customer.
things work without any problems. it compiled out of the box just like expected 
and we have not seen any failures or so for almost 2 years now.

so, thumbs up ... nothing to be afraid of.

        many thanks,
