SGI and IRIX SGI is ready to become emergent all over again. A judge has okayed the company's reorganization plan, paving the way for it to come out of bankruptcy protection in October. The 'new' SGI will be a trimmed down version of its former self with just 1600 staff. In addition, it will have a new board of directors to complement new CEO Dennis McKenna. With so much newness on its side, SGI expects to reach profitability in fiscal 2007.

Maybe they'll come with purple pills too? Seriously though, seems to me the high end 3d workstation market that SGI filled years ago is no longer so necessary. A cheap pc can do the same, only better, now.

I see on their home page they are marketing for things like celular simulations and HIV molecules. Okay that's really cool stuff but seems pretty niche to me. Either way I hope SGI sticks around. Good luck SGI.

True; they need to pull finger; am I the *only* person who see's potential in SGI embracing OpenSolaris, working with Sun, and releasing a 512 way Itanium Monster running OpenSolaris and Oracle? how about the same machiner running SAP or Websphere.

The possibilities are infinate, the sad part is, they've hell bent on this 'niche with Linux' stratergy; it didn't work the first time and I doubt it'll work the second time around.
