SGI Workstation?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I'm thinking of buying a SGI Workstation off ebay, just for the fun of it. The computer i'm looking at says that it doesn't have a OS, and you can install a OS of your choice. Will Mac OS 9, or X work on SGI computers? If not, what OS does?

    No, no, and SGI IRIX.

    Unless it's one of SGI's ill-fated NT machines, in which case, NT, Win2000, etc.

    Nothing beyond Windows 2000 will install on their 320 and 640 Intel workstations. If it is a MIPS system, IRIX and I believe some linux flavours run on it. IRIX is expensive, and quite a few CDs. I used to own an Indigo2, an Indy, and an Onyx IR Deskside.
