Irix fading away: no problem with COMPAT_IRIX in NetBSD/sgimips
``SGI launched the MIPS/IRIX family of products in 1988. Since then, this technology has powered servers, workstations, and visualization systems used extensively in Manufacturing, Media, Science, Government/Defense, and Energy. After nearly two decades of leading the world in innovation and versatility, the MIPS IRIX products will end their general availability on December 29, 2006.
* MIPS/IRIX End of Production: December 29, 2006''
Well no problem,
NetBSD's there to take over,
and esp. with the
Irix binary compatibility
there's nothing to worry about.
Companies interested in getting support contracts for their
Irix binaries feel free to talk to
the NetBSD Project's management! :-)
