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.

now what for SGI??

without Irix, and the fact that IA64 is not gaining
the industry wide support ( seems like people are
rooting for AMD64 and/or PowerPC ).

Plus whatever work that SGI did on Linux must be
distributed ( openly and freely ) to everybody.

what's left for SGI? supercomputer physical interconnects?

I think that SGI should or could have ported Irix to
IA64, AMD64 and PowerPC platforms..
