    hey guys, does anybody here knows how to realize cluster between mac and pc, I mean to organize a supercomputer system with mac and pc, meanwhile, let pc share its cpu to mac in order to enhance the power of the mac?
    do you guys know some software or some ways to make it?

    At first, I will tell you it's not possible.
    But maybe you could tell us what you expect to do ?

    I just want to do the test, to see if it can share the pc power with my mac in my home lan. however, why impossible? I think it should be naturally realized.:(

    It's possible, but it requires special software and some configuration. If you're a programmer and both machines have Java, you can use tools like GridGain to split up problems into smaller sets to be sent to clients to compute.

    You could also look into solutions like PVM and MPI if you want to create a single, distributed system.
