Definitions

  1. SGI (Silicon Graphics) is a leading manufacturer of high-performance computing, data management, and visualization products.
  2. SGI created the proprietary 3D graphics API Iris GL, from which the cross-platform OpenGL was developed by a consortium of companies.

  4. SGI was originally incorporated as a California corporation in November 1981, and reincorporated as a Delaware corporation in January 1990.
  5. SGI is in itself a thorny subject, but IMO the short version is that they aren't Buddhists at all, although they make it a point to ensure otherwise.

Sgi Name

  1. These machines made much of the SGI name as 3D graphics became more popular on television and film.

November 2002

  1. In November 2002, SGI announced a repackaging of its SN system, under the name Origin 3900.

Source

  1. SGI has released the earlier Open Inventor code into open source, but the source to OGL++ was never completed to any satisfactory degree.
  2. OpenSG and OpenSceneGraph are open source, while OpenGL Performer is a commercial product from SGI.

Unix System

  1. SGI began using the UNIX System V operating system.

March 31

  1. SGI sold the Cray brand and product lines to Tera Computer Company on March 31, 2000 for $35 million plus one million shares[1].

Linux

  1. But I would say that SGI should focus more on Linux as the next great Irix platform rather than just providing a patch-level CD for Linux.
