Yeah.. addon prices are insane
They're still used in production houses, so can command a reasonable price for V6-V12 capable systems.

I did ponder going for a Fuel, as the O2 is slow and only accelerates video, not 3D. However, anything other than an O2, Indy or Indigo only runs Irix and even the OpenGL is vastly outperformed by any recentish PC with addon card..

Octane runs Linux, but it's an experimental patch.
There's a Gentoo boot disk that works, and I was able to get Debian installed using that and cross-compile a kernel on my PC.

Well, it's progress..
I think OpenBSD is also getting close to working on an Octane, but there's no disk driver yet..

It's mildly interesting/irritating to try to put new packages on various OSses on the O2 (Irix, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Debian/Gentoo) and see the configure script panic with a 'what the fuck am I running on?'

Feck, I just looked and even NetBSD doesn't go on the Octane.
NetBSD goes on just about anything.
