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.

they're fucked, and they need a new strategy. Betting the company on Itanic is turning out to be a huge mistake. Itanic's failure actually hurts HP a lot more than Intel - at least Intel didn't have all its eggs in one basket, it's still got a bunch of other cash cows. (To mix metaphors wilfully.)
