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.

power consumption

Eugenia, any idea how much power the dual-octane consumes? I'll bet it breathes fire of a pair of "D" batteries! ;)

Seriously though, I had to pick up an ATX power supply at CompUSA last weekend and, IIRC, the smallest they come these days is around 240 watts.
