SGI and IRIX is still very relevant and essential to medical imaging at the top medical schools and medical research facilities including several which I have worked for as a graduate and post doctorate medical school student (Stanford University, Stanford Research Institute, and Harvard Medical School). I understand that a web site such as this is filled with individuals attempting to one up each other with comments disparaging the others preferred operating systems but SGI is developing technology that is used every day that helps us understand the complexity of the human brain and to save lives.
