"Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI) will put more effort into
Linux-based developments and consequently less into its proprietary
Irix operating system over the next few years, according to Jansen
Ek, vice president of SGI Asia-Pacific."
"SGI is strongly focused on developing for Intel Corp.'s
IA-32 and IA-64 processors and the open-source Linux operating
system, with a key initiative being SGI's XFS file system.
That will enable Linux to scale to very large systems, Ek said in a
keynote speech at LinuxWorld 2000 here today."
"Crucially, XFS has file journaling, a feature that the Linux
community has until now been unable to deliver, preventing Linux
from being used for mission-critical and high-availability
applications, he said."
