ENT Magazine: SGI Backs Away from Windows NT

“Just as Silicon Graphics Inc. (SGI, www.sgi.com) seemed to be
getting into gear in the Windows NT marketplace, the company
reversed course…”

At the time of the announcement, SGI was pitching a
parallel line of new servers, the SGI 1400L running Linux, as more
strategically important to the company…

“Company officials now say SGI?s major development and marketing
efforts with Intel chips will revolve around Linux. This has
broader implications to SGI?s product line than its fledgling
Windows NT products. SGI has also scrapped plans to port its
high-end Irix operating system to Intel?s 64-bit Merced processor
when that processor comes out.”
