I have to agree with Peter's statement on this and strongly disaggree that
SGI owns the super-computing market. SGI won't even have its Cray division
before too long. See SGIs own news release even about there "...partnership

absolutely have to keep your SGI hardware around then see if it's one of the
platforms that Linux is supported on (like the Indy's) and then compile in
Coda to your Linux kernel.
