Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Thanks to Leo Comitale for
"programmers inside and outside the company have been banging
away, bringing the free, open source operating system to an array

"SGI seems to be making all the right Linux moves, but the
company is reluctant to talk about them. In fact, SGI seems oddly
defensive, and sometimes ambivalent, about its Linux efforts."
"The company has worked for two and a half years with Microsoft
on high-end graphics, and a bold Linux pronouncement could
jeopardize that relationship, some observers say."
