Maybe, maybe not. For some of those apps I don't see HPE's product offerings
being much, if any, better than what's currently on the market. If these
IRIX-hanger-oners didn't see anything compelling to make them junk their
current hardware investment before, I doubt HPESGIWTFOMGBBQWTF will make them
change their mind.
