PC Week: Details emerge about SGI’s new NT workstations

“Microsoft Corp. resellers are jazzed about the sleek,
NT-powered Silicon Graphics Inc. workstations due to be unveiled
Jan. 11.”

“The ease with which the new SGI boxes will run Linux is a
question many resellers would like answered… in 1997 the company
began working with the open source community on a Linux port… the
new workstations won’t run Linux out of the chute…. said a source
close to the company.”
