2 IRIX 1 Default user interfaceIRIX Interactive Desktop

3 IRIX 1 IRIX is a computer operating system developed by Silicon Graphics, Inc. (SGI) to run natively on their MIPS architecture workstations and servers. It was based on UNIX System V with BSD extensions. IRIX was the first operating system to include the XFS file system.

4 IRIX 1 Through version 6.5.22, there were two branches of each release: a maintenance release (identified by an m suffix to the version number) that included only fixes to the original IRIX 6.5 code, and a feature release (with an f suffix) that included improvements and enhancements

5 IRIX - History 1 The IRIX name was first used around the time of release 3.0 of the operating system for SGI's IRIS 4D series of workstations and servers, in 1988. Previous releases were identified only by the release number prefixed by "4D1-", e.g. "4D1-2.2". The 4D1- prefix continued to be used in official documentation to prefix IRIX release numbers.

6 IRIX - History 1 IRIX 3.x was based on UNIX System V Release 3 with 4.3BSD enhancements, and incorporated the 4Sight windowing system, based on NeWS and IRIS GL. SGI's own Extent File System (EFS) replaced the System V filesystem.

7 IRIX - History 1 IRIX 5.0, released in 1993, incorporated certain of UNIX System V Release 4, including ELF executables. IRIX 5.3 introduced the XFS journaling file system.

8 IRIX - History 1 The last version of IRIX was 6.5.30, released in August 2006.

9 IRIX - Features 1 IRIX 6 was compliant with UNIX System V Release 4, UNIX 95 and POSIX (including 1e/2c draft 15 ACLs and Capabilities).

10 IRIX - Features 1 IRIX had strong support for real-time disk and graphics I/O. IRIX was one of the first Unix versions to feature a graphical user interface for the main desktop environment. IRIX was widely used in the computer animation industry and for scientific visualization due to its once-large application base.

11 IRIX - Features 1 IRIX was a leader in Symmetric Multi- Processing (SMP), scalable from 1 to greater than 1024 processors with a single system image.

12 IRIX - Features 1 IRIX used the Indigo Magic Desktop, which by default used the 4Dwm X window manager with a custom look designed using the Motif widget toolkit.

13 IRIX - Features 1 IRIX used the MIPSPro 7.4 Compiler for both its front end and back end. The compiler was designed to support parallel POSIX programming in C/C++, Fortran 77/90, and Ada. The Workshop GUI IDE was used for development. Other tools include Speedshop for performance tuning, and Performance Co-Pilot.

14 IRIX - Features 1 IRIX also supported OpenGL for graphics chips and Image processing libraries.

15 IRIX - Retirement 1 SGI announced the end of the MIPS/IRIX- based product line in a press release on 6 September 2006. Production ended on 29 December 2006 with last deliveries in March 2007, except by special arrangement. Support for these products will end no sooner than December 2013. All current SGI systems are shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
