In 2019 when Intel releases their 1024core chip, still at 2.5GHz with  
256GB dimm memory, a lot of people will be surprised that linux works  
and has done so at that size since the start of the century.  A lot of  
people will, in some way, be greatful that SGI pushed linux so far.

I, personally, think that Rackable and SGI will be a strong worldwide  
company and I look forward to being able to purchase from them.
