Irix can do all that, and use different familys and speeds in the same
box.  Want to mix 200mhz R10k's and 250mhz R12k's in your Origin2k?  Go
for it.  We have a half a terrabyte RAID onsite at NASA LaRC, hanging off
an Irix box.  That machine has more processors than NT can handle.  Oh,
and it doesn't go down.
