Huh! And yet sgi stock is down 4.73 percent today. But if this takes off it could be a real game changer, could be a prime buying opportunity!

The only US gear machine company left bought back all their stock and returned to private ownership. They are doing quite well, now that they are not controlled by the worthless lying bastards and thieves of the finance sector.

The cube is missing on this blade ....

Besides, I like the current logo a bit more than the "Belluzzo-Logo".

Why on earth Rackable didn't immediately change back to the cube and old font is beyond me. The SGI logo is utter crap, has always been utter crap, and will always be utter crap. It's like having a Ferarri in the garage that you never touch and drive a gremlin. What is new with the new logo? It looks like they embossed the "syfy" logo.

I agree....that logo doesnt look like its actually mounted. It does indeed look 'shopped. Even a horribly artistic person like myself could've done better. But I would have used Corel Graphics. :D
