Re: How frequently you use your SGI (in 2017)?

My Octane, and later Octane2 was my main machine from 2003 to 2006 - when the WWW wasn't so bloated I literally did everything with it: browsing, movies, music, gaming, you name it.

Today I'd need at least a Tezro I think.

Re: Forensic analysis of SGI IRIX disk volume [PDF] July 2016

OpenGL Multipipe [10, 57], OpenGL Performer [56] and VizServer [8, 9, 33, 58] also have had an impact on the industry [55]. By today’s s...
