      Alexandria, VA

As a user - or former or potential user - of the IRIX Interactive Desktop, I believe there would be a benefit to releasing the source code to the IRIX Interactive Desktop under an OSI approved license. I humbly request that you, SGI investigate this possibility and use your best efforts to accomplish this goal.

      Yes please! I have seen screenshots of it, and I have even considered purchasing an SGI machine, but I cannot afford one.

      the IRIX desktop is beautiful & simple. i sincerely think it would be a shame if it were never to be used on modern platforms & ended up being forgotten

      I have an SGI INDY and would love to be able to use the same interface on my Linux desktop machines for a hit of nostalgia. It's a simple and clean interface.
