The first drop of the necessary code to bring Linux to B1 standards is on their Web site. The code is essentially a rip of their IRIX code, and isn't fully Linuxified, yet, but it's all there and ready." Update: 04/12 05:52 by E : We got mail from Richard, who maintains these pages... He says: "It is true that SGI are working on making Linux C2/B1 as anyone who has been to a SGI Linux University event will attest, and we are working with a number of others to that end. But to say that we have released a patch for Linux is very misleading and is setting expectations way above what is currently available." So, take this with a grain of salt.
