Commodities Won

Man, I thought it was an April Fool's Joke that SGI would sell itself to RackspaceRackable Systems. Apparently not.

You'd think the HQ building was worth more.

I don't know what lesson there is here, except never bet with expensive custom hardware against an army of cheap Chinese boxes with an Open Source Operating System sponsored in time by an army of rabid coders and money by IBM.

I still wish this was an April Fools prank.
