SGI and IRIX The company is Silicon Graphics Incorporated, or SGI, which once was famous for its high-powered graphics and 3-D workstations but has fallen on hard times of late. SGI now focuses on supercomputers, but there's a tiny coterie of fans dedicated to keeping the company's aging but high-powered workstations alive. On a similar note, the every-three-months maintaince release of Irix is 3 months late.

Great Campus

Dunno where SGI is going these days, but I had a chance a few years ago to spend the better part of a day visiting and touring their primary campus south of SF. Great stuff and lots of fun. Anyone who has a chance should do it. Lots of big honking hardware, a big totally simulated theater/game arena that sat about 50 people (the prized seat was the one with the joystick at front row center), and just a bunch of weird stuff and great toys.
