Agreed! This is really just for historical interest purposes. I have 
Photoshop installed on a couple of my SGI machines and it works pretty 
well - it definitely does more than I will ever be artistically able to 
exploit. Later versions of IRIX even came with a special "accelerator" 
plugin to make Photoshop run faster.

I just remember it being fun to play with the KPT plugins on the old Mac 
versions of Photoshop back in the early 90s and I heard they also 
released it for UNIX, which of course makes me even more interested to 
find it...
