    Ouch! Poor C-Net. The real facts make them look impossibly stupid and childish.

    Even though the c/net article was commentary, it really was quite poor that it was allowed to be posted.


    Got to love Alan Graham's response, though :D

    It's a shame that c|net allows such drivel to contribute to their website. However, considering how much of their website is advertising from various hardware companies, it's no wonder the outcome.

    They used to be so fresh and interesting. It's a shame how far they've slid.

    it was truly horrible commentary by cnet, that kinda **** really pisses me off! as stated in the follow-up article, even if you shoot high for possible staff/build costs, you still have a amazingly powerful super-computer for under $6 million. uh, is anyone ***** home at cnet?!

    ok, just so you know, the profanity filter is there for a reason - please don't try circumventing it again.

    Amen

    Glad to see some articulate rebuttals to counter the sloppy misinformation coming out of Cnet.

    it's unix for Pete's sake

    whoever pete is

    Anyway, that cnet article is typical for them.
    Anonymous cheap shot with no sources or facts to back it up. Sounds like Karl Rove!

    I bet within the year we see 5 more clusters worldwide.
    Need to come up with better names..
    going to start a thread
