I talked to our SGI rep about this yesterday and he told me they are not 
really targeting "hard-core" university research where Linux/UNIX 
already has a strong foot hold.  Instead this is for the Business sector 
where simplified workflows and having easy HPC integration into an 
already 100% Windows Infrastructure is more appealing.

This was his take and it seemed reasonable to me.
