Topologix

Has anyone out there had any experience with the transputer-based system built
by a company called Topologix?  There are four transputers to a board, and the
boards can supposedly be plugged in directly to a Sun, limited primarily by
the number of slots available.  There is an operating system called LogixOS
which runs natively on the transputers and on top of SunOS on the host.  In
fact, it is claimed that LogixOS can be used to run parallel applications across
a network of Sun workstations, without even using the transputers.  

Is this a good product?  I would be interested in experiences, both pro and
con, as well any performance data which may be available.  If you prefer not


Thanks,
