SGI files for bankruptcy protection

SGI in the US has filed for protection. Currently other international SGI units are not affected.

SGI used to be the mainstay of the film industry, but have been overtaken by cheaper systems running Windows/Linux/MacOS X. Linux on PC hardware has thought to have been a major part of this, especially as software vendors have ported high-end video applications to the platform (like Discreet's Inferno).

SGI they'll be clear in 6 months, time will tell.
