Robert probably is talking about relative volumes rather than technical similarities.
By this criterion, VMS+NSK are likely responsible for even smaller percentage of HP Integrity revenues than zVSE+zTPF+zVM are of IBM System z revenues.
And HP-UX is likely responsible for even bigger percentage of HP Integrity revenues than zOS is of IBM System z revenues.
Continuing comparison, despite the clear trend down, Linux+Windows on HP Integrity probably still constitute percentage of HP Itanium revenues which is comparable to that of Linux on IBM System z, but from strategical point of view the later is much more important for the long-term viability of the platform.
