SGI and IRIX reports the immediate release of Maya 6.5, an award winning professional grade 3D Suite and a major part of the IRIX culture. Of interest is that this release marks the final release of the once SGI-owned software for Irix. It is sad to see the OS lose support as SGI has shifted focus to Linux.

Yeah so sad. Everytime I remember SGI downfall, I feel sad. Another great company dies. Reminds me a great technology ahead of its time. Nvidia (first exist on SGI), and Amiga and also BeOS (all dead now).

If only Steve Jobs won't listen, Apple could be also facing the same problem in years to come. Not now, but it will, since "It's All About Mindshare, Accessibility, And Marketshare". No body would develop (costly) software on the platform if the market (profit) to small.
