SGI is not actually picking up the support contracts from their federal
contracts. It would be up to the customer to purchase [extend] the
contracts to SGI. I certainly agree with Joe. This is most certainly an
acquisition of assets, not a merger. SGI has traditionally been a house of
large compute [for one realm or another]. They're probably tired of being
underbid on machines from cluster manufacturers. Their answer is, of
course, the ICE product. Acquiring LNXI technology [specifically in
software] helps SGI to augment this.
