Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"If SGI was hoping to reflect some of this week's Linux fever
onto its own announcement last week, the exercise can only be
judged a partial success."
"Already this month, more SGI stock has been traded than in the
preceding eleven months of this year but the price, although edging
up, is short of even half of its February high...."
"At least SGI it knows where it's going - and its plan B -
getting Linux out in volume - makes far more sense than its NT
wheeze ever did. SGI has now put all its eggs in the Linux
basket: releasing key intellectual property as open source,
and creating its own distribution - a value- add 'Plus Pack' on top
of Red Hat Linux, a la Mandrake."
