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.

Why does everyone say that Itanium is evil? It's a new technology, and it's not that bad. Of course, Joe Public won't go for Itanium system because of its high price, but neither he needs the 6 terabyte of memory installed. Not until some Sierra title states this as a minimal required hardware... But it's a shame they forget MIPS! And the way new prisms are loaded with Linux, that is just very sad... This is just sooo mainstream and lacks imagination.
