SGI and IRIX Firefox 3.0.19 is being beta tested on IRIX. Yeah, I know, Firefox 3.x is really old. But this is a big deal for IRIX users, who have been stuck on Firefox 2.0.22 for years. With this breakthrough, I expect to see 3.5 or 3.6 follow soon. Not sure how much more recent than that can be accomplished.

Come on, this is OSNews.

If there's one thing that we expect from this site, it's a bit of cheerleading for users of obscure and obsolete operating systems.

I think witold.bolt was being inquisitive, not malicious. The quotes around "practical" is a big hint.

I've used many fairly obscure and obsolete OSs and all of them had something different that made people tinker with it. I've never used IRIX, so I make the same question. What are the good and bad points of IRIX?
