Supercomputer OS's
For the entire top 500 they are running a Unix variant or a linux variant.
Linux "owns" the list with Unix claiming just 92 out of the 500 machines,
Mac OS X on three of them and not a single one running any M$ OS. This
includes Japan's earth simulator, a vector machine (now ranked 14). IBM
and HP are the top hardware vendors. Some interesting surprises for me.

Re: Supercomputer OS's
Why would a super computer run Windows? Most, if not all, are scientific
based that don't require much of an OS. Linux/Unix is great for that. It's
faster, more efficient, you can make a custom kernel for your specific
use... Even Microsoft knows that Linux has it's place: not on the desktop...
I've used Linux a bit, but for the average user, it's not a good OS, not
even close. I've had to support people running Linux that barely knew how to
turn a computer on... Not fun.

Re: Supercomputer OS's/Vista general topic. Not a setup issue.
Why not post this in the Vista general group? It's not a setup question.
