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.

LOL... may please direct you to the spec website and have you check out the performance numbers for the SPARC64, the Itanium and the POWER5? Maybe real hard numbers may give you the wake up call to reality you so desperatedly need?

And BTW it is ironic that SUN seems to be the ones moving to the Opteron... LOL!
