Here is the thread where everyone shares their appreciation for the SGI masterpiece OS IRIX.

I love IRIX...mostly because I worked for MIPS (until hard times struck...and now I'm a student again :( ) and I love MIPS CPU cores, which is the arch that IRIX was made for. Not to mention the IRIS Personal Desktop is one of the most usable UNIX desktops on the market.

By the way, if you say you like IRIX because you like the scalable vector icons, you can go to hell.

God damn it. Am I going to have to take away the ability of members to post stickies?

It really seems a dumb thing for members to have, anyways.

Sorry, it's a sticky for a comedy option...that's it, really...

The scalable vector icons are cool for like 10 minutes, I found...then I found other things, like how usable the IRIS personal desktop is...and how it has a REALLY nice file manager.

The only thing that pisses me off about IRIX is how hard it is to set a custom wallpaper. I hope they fixed that in a version after 6.5.5 :(

I have the entire disk set for an ancient version of IRIX (like all 10 CDs)...Don't remeber which version though. We used to run it on our systems...its been a long time though. (Debian is now our system of choice)

Porage is the way the gentoo linux can install parts of linux. By typing "emerge sheepshaver" you can install Sheepshaver on gentoo. However this never worked correctly.

Not seen you for a long time.

As for IRIX, I've never used it.

No idea why this is still a sticky, but I have fond memories of dialing in to the IRIX mainframe in the mid-90s. Scalable Vector Graphics are nice too.

Just for whimsy, I guess! Any topic with a "Mac Emu" AND a Stephen Coates post is a-okay in my book.
