I wonder what SGI’s chapter 11 filing (Slashdot and Yahoo!) will do for IDL support for SGI workstations? Dennis P. McKenna, the recently appointed, Chairman and CEO of SGI seemed optimistic about SGI’s future. From the Yahoo! article, McKenna said:

The new direction I have set is comprehensive, the product portfolio we will unveil is expansive and our dedication to customer satisfaction is unwavering.
