SGI Files for Chapter 11 Protection

SGI have filed for Chapter 11. It’s a sad day for anyone whoever used an Indy, an Nvidia card (much of the earlier Nvidia technology was built by ex-SGI employees) or the fortunate few who’ve used one of SGI’s NUMA systems. The people who brought us XFS, OpenGL and the luscious 1600SW widescreen LCD monitor are no more. You will be sorely missed. There’s a great writeup on the history of SGI at wikipedia. As an ex-Indy (and IRIX 5.3) user  today is a sad day for me but it’s definitely been a long time coming.
