    Great friggin article.....Srinidhi Varadarajan - the new nerd superhero....:D

    "Expect to see a lot more G5 clusters from now on," [Varadarajan] said.

    that's good news... mb a big cluster could take #1?

    also, they still haven't upgraded to 10.3 --> further speed increases?

    Never mind the MegaHertz -- Intel lost the GigaHertz battle.

    Don't you think it's weird that the article says they paid the full $3000 for each G5? Wouldn't they get the educational discount, even if they couldn't get a volume discount? Very weird!

    I think they got tons of free tech support and probably other perq's.
    I'm glad they're saying the paid full price, though, and WOW what a cool advertisement for Apple!

    Since the average supercomputer cost more than 5mill, I'm sure they were happy to pay full price for these babies :).
