Since we seem to be talking about clusters. How would you cluster two different machines with 32 and 64 bit architectures.

People are still comparing Ubuntu to Windows?

I utilize several distro's routinely, including Ubuntu, and I find that there are none which are more "Windows-like" than the others.

At any rate, I have found Linux to be the most customizable OS. Even the BSD's can't hold a candle to it, but perhaps that is due to the relative lack of BSD-based distro's.

Yeah . . . If "Windows-like" is a selling point for someone, then I think that the right OS for them might be something that starts with a 'W' and ends with a "dows."

Is Linux the most customizable OS out there? Well, I suppose that it's at least tied for first with all of the other open source operating systems, since all of them could be built from scratch with any changes you wanted right in there . . .

If Linux beats out FreeBSD and crew, it's only because of the work done by the people at LFS. With their nice, easy tutorials, most of the work of building a completely customized Linux system is already done for you.
