Well put! Does anyone know the percentage of supercomputers/clusters that
run Linux?  I would guess it would have to be above 90%.  Besides a few
proprietary systems that run special unix versions (I believe some NEC
may run a proprietary Unix, and some Cray models), there is actually a
Microsoft cluster environment out there, but I wonder what institution
actually uses that environment for real work?
