I was just remembering those blue sgi irix boxes (indy, indago, O2), is it possible to run a full blown IRIX Interactive Desktop in virtual box on gentoo?
or another mips visualization/ emulator for x86 linux?

It would be fun to checkout some of that old software again and compare it to where linux is at today.
Cheers
Turtle

turtles,

Not in Virtual Box as VB uses the host CPU, which would not take kindly to mips binaries.
qemu might work but it will be slower than a real mips box
