Linux and the Top500
Linux is making a good showing in the latest Top500 list of supercomputers. Linux systems account for 8 out of the top 10. Of those eight, six are of IBM manufacture, including five Blue Gene systems and one PPC Cluster. A SGI Altix, and Thunder, an Intel Itanium2 Tiger4 "white box" system hold third and seventh place, respectively.
