SGI and IRIX In the '90s, before MacOSX was released, if people were to reffer to a user-friendly Unix that looked cool at the time, that would have been SGI's 64-bit operating system for the MIPS processors, the IRIX. IRIX was first released in 1987, and by 1995 was already a highly respected UNIX, the first with immense multimedia capabilities! Check out our introduction and some screenshots of IRIX.

I know that I will be shouted down for this, but I think it would be great if SGI would ship an end-user desktop with GNOME as the default supported DE. I know that the GUI on an SGI is not important, but some people (like me) use Unix for their desktops and hate looking at Motif all day.
