Trickling Into the Mainstream
Two recent developments hold some promise for pushing HPC [High Performance Computing -- ie: clustering] more into the mainstream, however. The first is the entry of Microsoft into the HPC market in the first half of 2006 with Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003.
Did you hear that? Microsoft is doing it. It must be for real now.

"It wouldn\ufffdt be too difficult for a biologist to set up a small Windows Compute Cluster of servers in his office rather than having to go to the organization's 'high priest of clustering'," says Jeff Price, senior director for the Windows server group at Microsoft.
So if you set up a Linux box in your Windows shop, you should expect to have it shut down when it's discovered. But hey, go ahead and set up a freaking grid on your own. It's hard to do, and highly technical, and shit there isn't even any software for it so you'll have to roll your own. But you don't have to go to the "high priest" to get it.

Weren't you paying attention? Microsoft is just doing it. It must only now be entering the mainstream.
