"As an old SGI-Irix fan, I am distressed at watching the recent fortunes of SGI go from bad to worse. Alas, the once-great Unix company's ultimate fate is far from certain, but there is no denying that it looks grim. So grim, that these days I no longer despair of ever seeing the once-promised Intel port of Irix -- but despair instead of being able to keep my MIPS-based Irix environment."

"That is why it was with such great joy that I lately discovered a site on the Internet dedicated to the Indigo Magic Desktop (IMD) project for Linux."

"For I am also an old Linux fan, old enough that the first GUI I ever used on Linux was plain old X (and glad I was to have it, too)."

"The project to port IMD to Linux resides at 5dwm.org and is run by Erik Masson, a geek from Quebec who has been living in Hong Kong for the past seven and a half years. With a background in architecture (buildings, not computers) and computer science, he makes his living by building mission-critical systems for e-commerce."
