Silicon Graphics Sold for $25 Million

2 Apr 2009

I first thought this to be an April Fools story, but the sgi press release confirms that they have indeed been sold to Rackable.

When I was a kid, Silicon Graphics was king of computer generated imagery (along with George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic), producing special effects for movies like Jurassic Park and Terminator. They even initiated the defacto standard for describing 3d models, the OpenGL standard.

Good stuff
