Years ago us SGI hobbyists were able to talk to SGI about this and a
huge problem SGI had with any kind of hobbyist license for IRIX or
turning it free is it's fully of licensed 3rd party stuff. But maybe
now that's it's expired, or all the companies things were licensed
from are gone.
Right. I think the challenge(s) are in this space and whether or
not anyone there would have bandwidth or interest in addressing them.
No promises but my contact is at a fairly high level within HPE (and
formerly SGI) so I am hopeful it will at least get discussed.
