Per Fogelström was kind enough to provide us with some additional notes on the status of this architecture:
Boot from CD (to install) is a "work in progress". Until then only netbooting is available. Once installed booting from hard disk is supported.
Initial sound support on the O2 is available. Still work to do on that. IIRC only playback is supported at the moment.
X client side is supported. X server support is something that will likely happen in the future on the O2, once graphic driver support is in.
And, like the web page says, other SGI platforms will follow. What is most likely is Origin 200, Origin 2000 and Octane. We'll see what free time hacking will allow. ;)
