Transitive was a very interesting company. They also did a IRIX/MIPS binary compatibility layer for SGI when they (drank the cool-aid and) introduced their Itanium based systems in the early '00.

I've seen some fellow SGI enthusiasts running linux/itanium systems with QT installed and they can in fact run binaries created for ELF MIPS. Fascinating technology but it probably let to more buy in from SGI to drops MIPS development and go all in on Itanium.
