SGI and IRIX

A new version of the MaXX Desktop hasbeen released. We linked to the project almost two months ago, but the short of it is that it is a continuation of 5dwm.org and intends to bring the IRIX desktop to Linux. New features in this release include new xterm-330 with support for UTF-8 characters, SGI color schemes for GTK applications, a new console, new configuration files, SGI demos, as well as other small fixes.

And I'll keep putting these in the otherwise entirely useless and defunct SGI database category.

It would be worth checking with the developers/copyright holders if BSD is an "acceptable from of Linux" for licensing purposes. Sometimes Linux is used as a short-form for Free Software Unix. I don't see a good reason for them to exclude the BSDs, maybe they'd be open to amending the license.
