WSJ reports that Silicon Graphics has filed for chapter 11 bankrupty protection. Silicon Graphics is known for desktop workstations and larger server systems capable of rendering great graphics and used to be expensively deployed for animation centered applications – that include the likes of Hollywood studios. Some say that the company has suffered a long slide, partly due to competition from machines based on standard components used in personal computers. Darwin seemsto have played its part in this downfall. I think that in the last 24 months when things were indeed getting worse,they should have pursued a course of action to merge witha bigger firm. It is indeed sad to see the fate suffered by silicon graphics and one only hopes that the other tech giants take adequate note of this – the promising strong players of yesterday and today need not necessarily have a strong tomorrow.
