RE: A good OS centric discussion on performance

Actually, for Oracle, I'm not at all a an of Irix.  It was a great O/S,
but, I had nothing but trouble w/ Oracle clients, and there was the N32
nonsense, which I never did get working correctly.

And, I don't think I ever knew what Irix stood for...

Who remembers all the cool little graphics demos?  Buttonfly, the 3D
spider walking on the checkerboard plane, several others that I'm not
remembering anymore.  

And, that reminds me of the classic line from  Jurrasic Park, little
girl standing in front of an SGI box w/ buttonfly demo running, "Hey, I
know this!  This is Unix!" ;-)
