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.

Question

If Itanium is really dead (which I don't seriously dispute) then what about HP's long-held plans to migrate all or most of it's OpenVMS and Tru64 customers away from Alpha (a truly dead cpu?) and supposedly onto...Itanium?
