SGI and IRIX SGI is ready to become emergent all over again. A judge has okayed the company's reorganization plan, paving the way for it to come out of bankruptcy protection in October. The 'new' SGI will be a trimmed down version of its former self with just 1600 staff. In addition, it will have a new board of directors to complement new CEO Dennis McKenna. With so much newness on its side, SGI expects to reach profitability in fiscal 2007.

A nice addition for Apple?

I'd hate to see SGI go. They've done too much for the workstation market. Unfortunately, they extended themselves too far.

If they were to merge with Apple, they'd have a better chance because Apple's financial group is the strongest of all computer companies.

They'd both gain in the sharing of UNIX technologies and Apple would benefit from high performance computing and SGI would benefit in ease of use.

Apple has been searching markets where SGI has already been and their combination would end up with a product line from inexpensive desktop to supercomputer.
