Quote from: "neozeed"I guess they could open IRIX but would anyone care?
Quote from: "neozeed"But after Steve took control of apple, and they had OSX shipping, didnt they move pixar to apple equipment?
Quote from: "RacerX"When Pixar moved from SGIs they started using Linux workstations as I recall. The first time Pixar started using Mac OS X based systems for 3D work (they had been using them for other tasks including video editing since the late 90's) was after the release of the G5.
Quote from: "brams"AFAIK Pixar stopped using SGI workstations during the Octanes lifetime (Toy Story 2?), not sure about server side stuff but I know the farm was running Sun harware for a while, and latterly I think they are using Opterons. However if they now use G5's then that would suggest they use an X-Serve G5 farm?
QuoteAFAIK, Lucasfilm & ILM are using Linux/Opteron, in any case Holywood only made up about 20% of SGI's revenue, most of it coming from science & engineering, I think defense made/make the biggest contribution to the bottom line.
Quote from: "RacerX"Oddly, I don't recall them ever using Windows though.
