Sad. I'm sure the term for the marketing strategy can be found in the dictionary somewhere between necromancy and necrophilia.

yeah.. it is very sad to see how things continuing distortions in time :(
I do not understand the insistence of using old names more than a matter of marketing, ...but its only enough to read the "OS" table and see: Win .. and realize the "kind" of product.
Especially in this case, that the purchase decision bypasses the outer beauty, but precisely as illustrated by the posts, in the inner beauty of its architecture and reliability! :)

It's a pretty awesome box, but not for SGI...nor does the Origin label even remotely fit. Stupid thing is just a re-badged "Intel Modular Server".

Hey, not everything is bad. The hard disk caddies are the same of Tezro / Origin 350... or my Sun LX50 ones.

I wonder why they confused the issue, already having the successful Altix line for Intel-based machines (XE for x86_64).
