A nice quote from www.clusterbuilder.com :-)

"Linux variations are the most popular for HPC computing followed by Unix
variance and Mac OS X. Microsoft is intending added focus on Windows in high
performance computing, but has yet to make a measurable presence in the
market."

... the situation in the world's most powerful computer installations!


A good example of who actually pays for FOSS.

The new (IBM) supercomputer purchased by Canterbury University runs both AIX &
SUSE. Do we get a tour from Carl?


Cheers,

  Brent
