Where do people get them? Should they be purchased separately?
Some models, such as O2s, Octanes, and Onyx2s, shipped with machine-specific demo CDs, but those discs technically were not part of the "standard" IRIX distribution. Another source of demonstration/trial software were SGI's "Hot Mix" CDs, which were released regularly to support contract customers.
