Re: HP(e) buys SGI for US$275MM

I think Tru64's fate is equivalent to IRIX fate

Re: HP(e) buys SGI for US$275MM

There is too much encumbered code with IRIX that is cross-licensed from multiple sources. Open Sourcing it will not be an option.
However, making it freely available for download and hobbyist usage (as-is with no support) might be an option.

Re: HP(e) buys SGI for US$275MM

Forget any further talk about IRIX, HP-UX, OpenVMS or any legacy type systems. (maybe see an x86 version of HP-UX...) I work for VMS Software, Inc., and I work full-time on porting OpenVMS to x86, so please don't forget about it! :-) Camiel This is good to know. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing th...

Re: HP(e) buys SGI for US$275MM

The only thing Rackable Systems, err SGI, had going for it are patents on "back to back" rackmount servers and federal and life sciences customers. HPE takes a minor nuisance out of the market and absorbs an HPC client base. Forget any further talk about IRIX, HP-UX, OpenVMS or any legacy ...

Re: HP(e) buys SGI for US$275MM

Maybe, but Silicon Graphics Inc was gone a long time ago....
This was just Rackable Systems with "SGI" as the new name. Like when Caldera bought the Unix stuff from The Santa Cruz Operation and just changed their name from Caldera to the SCO Group

Re: Not mine, but if anyone REALLY wants an IrisVison, there's one on ebay

I know the guys that are selling this. I bought a brand new in box IBM 9517 17" PS/2 monitor from them.
They have a ton of old stuff stashed away in their warehouse in Long Island. Their company is called the New York Computer Exchange

My thanks to all of you!

I've been on Neko's forums for over 10 years now. Most of the time I haven't been very active, just lurking really, as most of the answers I was looking for were already there. Here and there I would contribute a bit (most of you know far more about IRIX and SGI than I will ever know). The Nekoware ...

Re: Impressive O2 for sale on ebay (not mine)

I think the value in that auction is the set of Software. I would love to have complete in the box sets of those and everything fully licensed on the computers.
How much should something like that go for?

Impressive O2 for sale on ebay (not mine)

Found this while browsing ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Silicon-Graphic ... 19dbfb93a3

An impressive collection of intact items (IMHO). Very expensive though.
Is the seller someone here on Nekochan?
