Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

why not just get yourself one of the DEC Alpha machines then? People who actually use the machines will say "4Dwm." Second reason is a fairly useful set of applications. Second-best desktop is the Workplace Shell. Actually it deserves first place but not as many of the applications that I...

Re: SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently?SGI IRIX and computer graphics currently? What that should i use ?

I do not like current 3d software, are a waste of time and I am not the only one, I see many users buying Tezro and using Maya 6.5 and Softimage 3d or xsi on SGI Irix machines, the current softwares in my view are waste of time. You are delusional. You can't even browse the web on an SGI computer n...

and now for something completely different !

Whoa. It's Loonix still but ... whoa. Snag NixOS somewhere and try this thing out. First totally different concept I've seen in forever. Warning ; you may get a headache. But not because it is stupid, like so much crap out there. No, because it is alien :-) It seems to work pretty well. It might be ...

Yes. An opinion formed by owning and using every one of these machines on a daily basis since some time around 1995, rather than something I pulled out of my ass. Exactly.

Re: Best workstation to start with?

All of these machines are pretty useless by todays standards, but that's not the point is it! That's exactly what I mean. If you don't know what you are talking about, you shouldn't be giving advice. Some of us actually use these computers and have real-world experience with them. The O2 is crap. W...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

These are not all of the possible comparisons, but they do show the R12K 400MHz O2 to perform relatively well. No. O2's are shit. They are the most unreliable piece of crap on the planet. My Westinghouse was more trustworthy and it was bit-sliced, with core. Here we have a case of people who have n...

Nobody is interested in hearing your critique ... If you don't like the topic, then don't post. If you don't like the hobby nature of this forum, then please leave.

Re: Internals of the duel R14k CPU modules, upgrading modules by replacing CPUs

Jesus Christ. Can someone who has a clue please step in here ? It was COMMON to swap out the pre-300 mhz processors. Worked in both single and dual forms. But at 360 mhz SGI went to soldered processor chips, which are a bear to replace. Even with the O2 boards and soldering on new outta the box chip...

I can't stand this. What the fuck is wrong with you people ? "What can I do with a G5 ?" Well, you could spend thirty seconds with your favorite search engine and find several thousand programs that run great on a G5. You know, little-known ones like PhotoShop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premi...
