SGI and IRIX Can a proprietary Unix be a desktop OS that competes with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux desktops? Although it may lack the visual effects of OS X, and installation is tricky in parts, Irix is a stable desktop OS -- possibly because it runs only on SGI's own hardware. Read the rest at NewsForge.

I think it's kinda late for SGI

Someone needs to buy them for their technology and put them out of their misery. Good technology, but 0 market outside of defense any more.

Was looking at their campus last weekend when I was playing golf. Still a beautiful campus, though I suspect Google (who is next door) will buy all the buildings that SGI continues to vacate... they've already bought one or two of them.
