Yeah. SGI lost it with the NT crap, shoulda stuck to what they knew.
That's one reason why Sun and Apple more or less rock - they stick to what
they do best (most of the time, I do remember the 386i -got 4 of 'em-, as
well as the Macintosh TV), and they improve the breed as they go along.
Think about it - you can run the same Solaris 7 on a SPARCstation 1, or an
E10000. Friggin' amazing. MacOS (Until OS X) had a 17-year run. The
Apple II Line sold from 1978 to something like 1994...
Best of all, old hardware still rocks - I know folks doing fine on
computers and OS's that are 10 years old....
