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.

if Nvidia bought out SGI! then they could FINALLY release their framebuffer code, at least 80% of it is based on SGI code... NVIDIA was founded by ex sgi employess so it'd be a kind of reunion, keeping it in the same family. I bet NVIDIA could do some amazing things with that sgi tech too...
