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.

It is not a review. It is an introduction to IRIX. Read the title. And I can't compare it with any previous version, as this was the first time I used an IRIX for more than 10 minutes. I am not rich you know.
