It's fun to play on; good for a university system, which is where
I'm familiar with it from (also TheWorld's shell account uses
Irix, but that's only a shell). For example, you can learn MIPS
assembly language or OpenGL programming. The docs are very complete
compared to Linux, though I'm not sure if that's a general commercial
Unix thing or not because I've mostly used Irix (and SunOS/Solaris,
but I never had good experiences with that (though some people
seem to like it alot)).
