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.

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%).
