It comes without much surprise then that former graphics and server supertar Silicon Graphics is filing for bankruptcy, as they seek to eliminate over $250 Million in debt.
"This is a necessary and responsible step that will strengthen the company and foster a sustained turnaround at SGI," Dennis McKenna, chief executive, said in a statement.
This isn't the first time they've tried to turn the company around, and likely won't be the last. Somehow, though, I feel we just won't be seeing any new tricks out of them. They are still trying, though, and will remain focused on embedded and specialty markets.
