A couple of years ago I was told this is not possible, well... actually i didn't understand why.

As time goes by, so are days off our lives, is it still impossible? Or now there are some solutions?

AIX runs on PowerPC processors. It does not run on x86 or x86_64.

QEMU emulates enough of PowerPC to run PPC Linux, but still it is a long way to AIX or OS X.
