: MIPS Chips != SGI systems. My question still stands.
Have you forgotten Nintendo 64 sales?
MIPS Chips == $$$ for SGI. $$$ for SGI is what it is all about, that's what
feeds the light bills. If making a bunch of hackers happy turns into $$$
for SGI in the long term, then we do it. At this point, I believe it is
obvious that that is the case.
