Linux dominates Supercomputers Top 500
 
Here's the link to the article at tomshardware. I thought this quote was most interesting:

"Linux supporters know that, in terms of operating system rankings, the Top 500 list isn't even a contest any more. 391 systems on the list ran some variant of Linux, although a UNIX variant can claim #3: "ASC Purple," also from Livermore Labs. The highest-ranking supercomputer running Windows was #130, a Dell PowerEdge 1855 running a 900-processor cluster of Xeon CPUs, with a performance of 4106 GFlops/sec."

Good for linux, but you can still build super-cheap supercomputers by combining a bunch of G5s like they did at Virginia...it ranks way up there in the top 500 and there are several other similar systems on the list too.
