SGI RIP [May. 8th, 2006|09:13 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

Ok so not really a surprise but SGI filed for Bankruptcy, which makes me a little sad, mostly because I remember when they are something special, machines that did things no other could and look very different from the beige boxes, years before the the candy coloured iMacs (but around the same time as the Nextcube).

Anyway Macs and PCs got half decent graphics cards (many designed by ex-SGI people) and started to be able to do the same fancy tricks, so it was only a matter of time. Why pay the price of a house for a machine when a PC for a tenth of the money could do 95% of the same things, still I think the old logo is one of the best.
