Originally posted by microsoft/linux just out of curiousity, what defines enough demand?
Well considering in the past year, only around 44 threads discussed "Beowulf" and 8 threads discussed "HPC" and using "Cluster" as a search term which brought irrelevant results mixed in, it only had 254 thread hits, which a majority included the Beowulf and HPC terms.
I would say a forum that gets less than 300 threads would not meet the demand since a majority of our forums have thousands upon thousands of threads and posts in each.
I would certainly be in support of a forum concerning HPC and clustering.
One thing that I think has been overlooked here is that, if there IS a forum available for this sort of thing, then traffic and threads concerning the subject would very likely increase due to visibility.
