The SGI Quad Tezro and SGI Fuel and their MIPS-based server-line is still in use by institutions. However the fact is that the big business is in embedded devices nowadays with MIPS32/MIPS64. Albeit there does exist netbooks based on MIPS.

Are people just looking for eval type boards with MIPS cpus?

I think the answer to that is: Yes.

There are not really any commercially available MIPS based devices that can be used as a general purpose server/workstation. Some people are working on old SGI Octanes, but there is really nothing available for currently produced processors.

Is there any way for a mere mortal like me to get his hands on a
BCM91480B, the evaulation board for Bigsur, and if so, how much would it cost? Right now, it's not even on the Broadcom website, but I keep seeing mentions of it on the internet as if many people are getting it
somewhere.
