Schluss mit IRIX?

SGI Warns That Bankruptcy Might Be Year-End Option: "SGI issued its most ominous regulatory filing to date, warning that a bad 2006 could force the former high-flyer into bankruptcy. In order to improve its business, SGI will consider measures ranging from axing or selling off product lines to pursuing 'a strategic partner or acquirer.' The hardware maker will basically look at anything and everything to remain a going concern."

Und was mach ich jetzt mit meinen SGI Silicon Graphics Rechnern?

Auf der Octane soll angeblich Linux spielen, wohl aber nicht auf der in meinem Büro (Octane2 mit V6 Grafik). Die Indigo2 SI kann nur IRIX, auf der Indy sollte NetBSD spielen, Linux geht auf der Kiste aber auch. Die Grafik der Indy ist ja glücklicherweise nur ein aufgebohrter Framebuffer ohne Spezialchips.
