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.

> SGI --> Sun? That's kinda like jumping from Titanic to Titanic. You must be sadistic!

What makes you think that Sun is a Titanic? Sun is actually in quite an enviable position right now, they managed to turn themselves around and have a boatload of truly kick-ass technology. Finances are also looking pretty damn good for them. They just need to overcome the wave of FUD and pessimism that stuck to them from the old days. Sun has some pretty bright future, I'm telling you.
