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.

I have an Octane and an Indy at home, and my take on this whole thing about SGI going downhill is I personally don't care.

I have used Maya on SGI's and I believe until the day I get as good as the guys in Independence Day, Star Wars Episode I & Co. my Octane is Good Enough.

+ just because a company goes downhill, doesn't mean its product are less good, even by today's standards
