SGI and IRIX If there is one company out there that embodies "former glory", it just has to be Silicon Graphics Incorporated. Once one of the most well-respected high-performance computer and software makers of the world, it is now a mere shadow of its former self. The most recent set of financial results from the company do not bode well for the already troubled company.

Right about that time they were offered a chance by Nvidia to put their cutting edge graphics processing hardware in consumer video cards. SGI balked, I mean, sell to the muddled masses!

It's amazing that totally missed the boat on that.
