"CRN_ Let's start with a look at where you go
from here. Silicon Graphics has done poorly in three key
areas,revenue growth, profit growth and stock performance,ver the
last three years. What are you doing to remedy that?
Bishop_ We spent a year transforming the
company. We became a single-mission company, and the mission was to
serve technical and creative users. ... We are about a $2.3 billion
company in a market that is about $25 billion. So we only have 10
percent market share. It's our plan to double the volume of the
company over the next three years."
"CRN_ At one point there was an opportunity to
sell the company. Do you still think that the decision not to sell
was a good one?
Bishop_ Yes, because we're out of the
transformation, the fundamental transformation. Emotionally, we've
already turned. The combination of the motivation level of the
company and the acceptance of the new products is extraordinarily
high. Our clients remain loyal, and they want us back because no
one filled our shoes."
"CRN_What is Silicon Graphics doing in
terms of Linux? How much do you think you'll sell going
Bishop_ We want to expand the entry level of
our business. We'll have the same target markets but a bigger
number of new entry-level users. We have decided to build
systems on Linux and Intel and transfer a lot of other technologies
to capture this entry-level base because the economics are so good.
And we want to run that parallel to our MIPS/IRIX
