    Nice.

    What boggles my mind is the "6.5.23" number. In my opinion (and
    following the 6.5 compatibility mandate) this should have been version
    6.6 or 7.0.

    I realize that these systems are old and that SGI probably has very
    few (if any) such machines on active support contracts... but the
    least they could do is keep some form of limited support, if for no
    other reason than a confidence boost.

    What's next? Killing the freeware site?

    Way to go, SGI.
