It's not really a fair comparison, though.  The money you pay is for the
hardware "Reality Engine".  Do some 3D rendering tests and then post
the results!

Of course, with the new 3D PC cards (i.e. the "Glint" chip, etc al), it
could be that SGI's aren't worth their cost any longer...  Windows, after
all, does come with the same "OpenGL" that SGI wrote.

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
