Advantages as compared to what?
-- Debian on Intel?
+++ powerpc has better RAS features than Intel, for example,
my favorite, PCI error handling and recovery, or hotplug cpu,
dynamic LPAR configuration, etc.
-- SuSE/RedHat on PowerPC?
+++ SuSE/RedHat offer formal support, for $$$, which debian/ubuntu do not
-- AIX on pSeries?
+++ AIX has various "enterprise" features that Debian does not.
You might try talking to RedHat/SuSE product support, and also to IBM
