I have heard of plenty of Debian clusters in the past, but all of them
have been home grown rather than purchased. I'm guessing that if people
are going the route of buying an expensive cluster that they will also
want the warm fuzzys of having the OS running on the cluster supported
by a vendor with large support contracts, and they see Debian as a 
relatively (and incorrectly) unsupported system as it doesn't give out 
the same warm fuzzies as a large vendor does.
