  I personally would not buy an O2 to run IRIX either. If I
buy one, then for running some "cool" apps that let me do
my job (better), or have let me have some real fun. The OS
finally involved is pretty much irrelevant (OK, this statement
is not true for NT, or is it).

 Which just means that whatever OS gives me more "cool" apps
will be more useful for me.

 OK. Enough marketing speak.
