Mosix and Linux: The antidote to Allchin, Miller
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes us about a column at osOpinion: "Consider the possibility of a group of Linux boxes, by day a sweet, innocent set of personal workstations and PCs, by night a bloodthirsty, savage, number-crunching supercomputer. Does that send a shiver down your spine? Welcome to the world of achievable solutions. The joke on Microsoft is that this software -- the Mosix clustering software -- has been already compiled for Windows NT. Just check out the Mosix site. But it can be incorporated into the Linux kernel, or for that matter, into Free-, Net-, or OpenBSD or whatever, because of the open nature of all these operating systems."
