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.

Itanic is evil and it is pretty bad as it was too overpromised and phenomenally underdelivered, Intel managed to fool the market into believing that Itanic is going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread, but turned out to be an absolute dud -- Itanic is the biggest failure in the history of semiconductors.
