SGI Acquires Linux Networx Assets, LNXI Dead?

  • I am currently onsite with three other techs at the federal reserve bank in Kansas city moving a cluster. It is the last field work lnxi will ever do. Support will be kept on for six months and everyone else got walking papers. So for six months I will get to reassure customers they won't get fucked like all my coworkers.
    • I'm sorry... it sounds like a real clusterbleep.

      I had a previous employer or two go under as well; it's never pretty, but at least at the last one it was more like apoptosis [wikipedia.org] than necrosis -- they kept everyone on for a few extra weeks, attempted to place everyone, and even allowed departing employees to purchase their personal workstations. That was classy.
