I remember driving in to work (at SGI) the morning it was announced. My
first reaction was "why"?
The Cray purchase drove the company to distraction. This was a bad time
to be driven to distraction.
LNXI is much smaller than Cray was at the time. I don't think there are
that many cultural differences ... a number of ex-SGIers were over at LNXI.
This is less of a "merger" and more of an acquisition of assets, and
hiring of some people.
One less good HPC company in the world.
