Every now and then I would check the SGI website to see if they had finally fallen. Today it happened.
SGI filed for chapter 11 around May 8 2006, although they have emerged a new leaner company on October 17 2006.
I think many people will be sad, although not that surprised, to see it finally happened. SGI was a company that made a lot of computer people dream of amazing things. They also made plenty of other non-computer people dream too, being the power behind many amazing visual effects, such as movies.
SGI tried many things to fix their problem of lower cost competitors biting into their market with little success. Let’s hope the new SGI is able to return itself to some of its former glory.
