Commentary on the SGI Graphics Division
John West at insideHPC has a scathing commentary on Mark Barrenechea’s latest blog post, which we covered last night, in which he says the big problem is not that they axed the graphics division, but that they are not being honest with their customers.
The problem here is not that the company has changed direction. It is hard to argue that the old SGI didn’t need retooling, and in that process a “not doing list” will surely have to be executed. The problem is that the company is not communicating honestly with its customers or the community.
