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.

RE:What happened to SGI?

>The famous SGI logo was changed to what I regard as a truly retarded,

This one was what I recognized as starting point of SGI going down. Apart from bad business decisions, I really can't figure out why thay changed what happened to be one of the most interesting and bautifully designed logo in IT industry to something really retarded and mediocre. Unfortunately, I don't see SGI coming back to (more affordable) workstation market anytime soon.
