Does anybody know if there has ever been a cluster battle between PowerPC and Pentiums?

If there has been could someone give me a site to go look at?

LMAO

I think that the cluster battle would be hilariously horrible for the pentiums. It's obvious that the mac cluster would take about 50-500 hours less to hook up than the pentiums, and it's obvious it would do better speedwise. It takes like a week for colleg educated peeps to hook up a linux cluster. A 6th grader can hook up a mac cluster. I forgot the soft you use to do it but i'll look it up :p

linux?
The competition wouldnt be fair then. both clusters would have to use their own native software.
Pentium - Win2k
PowerPC - OSX Server

it be great to know the results, maybe Apple should challenge Wintel.

clusters are multiple computers parallel processing information... Basically 16 processors do work faster than 1, so they work together. scalable computing can be many sizes... it's kind of like Seti@home...

As for software, I used launchdenmother by some grad students at UCLA... there's probably more sophisticated software out there by now tho...
