I was told that the original MIPS/Origin4000 plan was going to offer
single-image. I suppose it is a valid point that if MIPS/IRIX/Origin
had continued, this level of scalability would be out and in use by
now. The move
to Altix/etc. has introduced a delay, but they've been able to do the
pretty quickly all things considered, and it has offered SGi a chance
some of things which weren't done so well in IRIX. Many things in IRIX
first attempts, especially the video stuff. Just a shame that rather
fixed/improved in IRIX, the better ways of doing these things will end
Still, others continue to write new code. A friend of mine who did the
capture tool says he'll get back into working on a full O2 video
editing suite. Capture
hours and hours of video with no frame drops? No problem. Uncompressed
included. Nobody *needs* a 3GHz CPU to do video, which is not what MS
have you believe...
