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.
