This guy also says that Linux hasn't shown it can run more than one
application at a time.  That's just too humorous for a response.

I really had high hopes for SGI, being they're trying to embrace 'Open
Source'.  But then I a recall my experiences running IRIX, which doesn't come
with gcc or even ping and whois.  Oh, I guess you can 'buy' gcc from them for
$1,500 or so.  SGI's just jumping on the bandwagon.
