BAD in general
I just learned they bought SGI, what once was Silicon Graphics, in its time a legendary computer manufacturer responsible for bringing very significant advancement to the industry.
What HP now called HPE has acquired: – this is not an extensive list
- Compaq and with it came Digital Equipment the old DEC
- EDS which later was reported as a loss.
- Palm. It went nowhere with it
- Autonomy. Which resulted in an $8.8 billion accounting charge, meaning a loss and they’re even planning to get rid of the software division altogether.
What’s the future of SGI then? For what I’ve seen, certainly not bright. I do not have high hopes.
