>>What they need is a big kick forward by focusing on the big markets, not the niches - that is where the money is.<<

Is that realistic for a company as tiny as SGI? If SGI is doing the same thing as everybody else, then who needs SGI?

If I were to consider buying from SGI, I would want to know: what different, and special, about SGI? What can SGI offer that I can't get from Sun, IBM, or HP?

As it stands now, the reason to buy SGI, is to buy an old box to run legacy apps. At least that is the only thing I can think of.
