My guess is that it's hard to define a precise market for Beowulfs,
since my impression is they are not for every application that people
have traditionally used big computers for, but...
Does anybody know an authoritative or at least credible source I can go
to to find out what market share these clusters may have grabbed--in
particular pentium-PC-based clusters? (though I won't be picky).
I'd also like to know stats or just know of examples of private-sector
Beowulfs--let's say of at least 100 CPUs or more. (I know Google says it
has a 4000 cpu linux cluster, but that's practically the only one I've
heard of so far)
I'm writing <sigh> yet another of those alleged oodles of media stories
on Linux. I usually prefer to write news.
