Hey, until MS releases a 64-bit version of NT that runs anywhere *close*
to as well as Irix on 128-processor single-system-image CC/NUMA machines,
there's no chance in hell that SGI'll stop supporting/developing Irix...
at least, on the high-end server systems. [So don't hold your breath.]

Though as has been announced in the press, the single-user desktop system
is a different story.
