SGI and IRIX SGI hopes to emerge as a leaner, meaner organisation by the end of the third quarter. The hardware maker this week filed an amended reorganisation plan that calls for it to finish off bankruptcy proceedings by September. If all goes as expected, SGI will trim its total debt down to USD 70m from USD 345m. Some of the debt will be removed in exchange for the privilege of investing more money in SGI 2.0.

I can't agree with that, sure they have very good hardware but Irix is painful.

When I was administering Origins, I was much more busy to make them work well than now with another unix brand.

I remember that some daemons like nis were quite unstable, fam was eating all cpu. Those servers required much attention, and needed to reboot every month to keep in good shape.

Also the sales people were very unpleasant.
