yeah, cos it's just a bunch of apple powerbooks running linux linked 
together with bits of wire and chewing gum. ;-)

There's a lot more to building a supercomputer than picking an OS and 
bolting the off the shelf bits together.  It doesn't matter the article 
doesn't mention linux I thought we where after desktop users this year 
wasn't last year 'the year of the computer scientist'?
