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.

On a similar note, the every-three-months maintaince release of Irix is 3 months late.

I had no need for the memory. I had no need for the video camera that came with it. The desktop environment was ok but I used a terminal app on my Mac to edit and compile my Ada programs. Now I wish I had that old indy......
