SGI – Services & Support: End of General Availability for MIPS® IRIX® Products:
SGI launched the MIPS IRIX family of products in 1988. Since then, this technology has powered servers, workstations, and visualization systems used extensively in Manufacturing, Media, Science, Government/Defense, and Energy. After nearly two decades of leading the world in innovation and versatility, the MIPS IRIX products will end their general availability on December 29, 2006.
Support will stick around until 2013? Still, another victory for Linux.
