[News] Super Linux Market Share Grew from 36.80% to 90+%

Hash: SHA1

The Super Windows That...Couldn't

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the more bizarre accusations flung by Microsoft at GNU/Linux over the 
| years is that it doesn't scale. This is part of a larger campaign to portray 
| it as a kind of “toy” operating system – fine for low-end stuff, but nothing 
| you'd want to run your enterprise on.   
| Sadly, that narrative has been rather undermined by the independent Top500 
| supercomputing sites ranking. Five years ago, the GNU/Linux family ran 36.80% 
| of the top 500 supercomputers; worse, Windows ran on precisely one 
| supercomputer.    


Poor Windows. Still trying to enter the market while the company enters debt.


Linux still super in Top500

,----[ Quote ]
| In the June 2008 Top500 list, Linux still lives large with a role in 92% of
| systems (It is the only OS for 85.4%, but when considering all distributions
| (SUSE, Red Hat, CentOS, and general ‘Linux,’ as well as mixed uses that
| include Linux, I figure the share is more like the 92%).

Red Hat Delivers First Integrated Linux-Based High Performance Computing

| high-performance computing through an easy-to-install, end-to-end solution

SiCortex cranks clocks on mega MIPS machines

,----[ Quote ]
| Supercomputer maker SiCortex launched its first MIPS-based Linux machines
| back in November 2006 and has been gradually ramping up sales. To help make
| its sales pitch easier, the company this week announced a kicker to its
| original boxes, which now support faster processors, a tweaked software
| stack, and manufacturing costs that SiCortex is passing on to its customers
| as lower prices.
| [...]
| In the wake of its acquisition of compiler expert PathScale, SiCortex has
| done a MIPS port of the compiler suite and has also done a lot of work on the
| libraries and systems software in the variant of Gentoo Linux (one of the
| many flavors of Debian Linux out there) and the Lustre clustered file system
| used SiCortex iron.
