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.

Linux didn't happen to SGI

The SGI machines are elegant to look at and to use. My primary machine is a dual G5 and sitting right next to it is an Indigo2 R10000 IMPACT. Linux doesn't do it for me... nothing unique about it.
