*cough* beowulf/avalon *cough*

linux has been clustered for a few years. and nasa is just one entity
doing it :) the beowulf name for clustering is used at several other
locations like caltech and los alamos.

avalon is at:

http://cnls.lanl.gov/avalon/

there is a recently setup cluster. rather impressive, peaking at 19.3
Gflops. to the best of my knowledge....nothing m$ makes does this.
-d
p.s. the note on slashdot says NT peaks at 4 processors. i do believe
the avalon cluster slighly exceeds that ;)
