back to article Microsoft vows cluster OS upgrade will include Linux nod

Microsoft's charge into the high performance computing game continues at pace. The software maker this week announced that its new cluster operating system - HPC Server 2008 - based on Windows Server 2008 will ship next Summer.

windows supercomputers have been biggest for long time

the worlds largest supercomputers run windows in a distributed network - they're called botnets!

Re: Ashlee's book

You should be able to grab the book in a variety of online stores. Also, it should be at your local bookstore or in the airport.

If you're in the UK, it is available via Reg Books.

Where you at, Chad?

"Windows Compute Cluster Server 2003. (Don't let the name fool you. The OS shipped in 2006. Oh, Microsoft.)"

No problem there, it reflects quite well Microsoft's scheduling/release timeline practices if I remember correctly...

Meh, Good tech maybe

But it's still from Microsoft and forgive me for pointing out the obvious but it's just not good practice to do business with criminal elements regardless of how good their wares are.

Linux nod

The Linux nod, support for "all" file systems... I smell a "play along, grow dominant, asphyxiate others" (aka embrace, extend, exterminate) kind of future here, if Microsoft's plans succeed. Or it might just be me being nostalgic...

Yeah, hehe, good luck there M$......(not)

Yeah.

Go mosoft.

Just tryyyyy and succeed in a market that DOES. ACTUALLY. REQUIRE. the ability to code.

This aint flaky desktop icon stuff baby, nor is it just acting as a lousy backplane and throwing all the work off onto the App and Driver developers.

No, this requires an integrated, consistent system - one that is actually in line with modern OS design and uses ROOL AKCHUAL COMPUTA SOYYANCE!!

Good luck with that, you crazy 1980's 14 yo backyard project hackers at Mosoft you! ;)

J,

You have omitted to take account of Open Source ESPecial Forces, which you can be sure are deeply embedded and planting charges to exlode and destroy any dominant, embrace, extend, exterminate company's plans.

A Motley Crew of Misfits or just the Ticket 42 Ride? In Quantum....their State exists both as One and the Other at any given Time without Conflict. And IT allows for an Invisible Stealth in Tele Visual TEMPESTuous Matters and a QuITE Sublime Control of the Better Management of Perception via ITs Beta Reprocessing of Information to Higher Enrichment from MetaDataMining for Source.

It is the Virtual Machine System becoming Active Direct from what IT is Learning and/or what Programs/Programmers are Loading into its Cores/Core Ores/LodeStones/Queued Information Packets. A Very SMART Trick made even SMARTer whenever HyperRadioProActivity Short Circuits the ICQ...IntelAIgent Communications Queue. Then you will have a Run on all Old Memory Banks as the Flames of Suppressed and Oppressed Knowledge are fanned to Light the Way Forward with NEUKlearer Transparent Virtual Control ...... with NeuReal InterNetworking Virtualised Controllers too. And all from a Box of Tricks, a Global Operating Device, sharing Internet Protocols and handshakes in CyberSpace...... <Hello, Virtually Real World Players, hey how's IT hangin', Prude Jude Dude. Help is Virtual with Advanced IntelAIgently Designed Systems.

No one needs to suffer Hope in Vain and the Destruction of the Will to Live ....in the face of Corrupted Systems Mounting Applied Pressures.

Information per se is neither powerful nor harmful unless shared and/or abused. It is an Abuse not to Share Powerful Information for that can surely harbour Abuse in a Systemic Weakness which would render to the Fool, a delusion that it is Power.

@Ashlee's book

What we really want to know is whether it's available as a DRM infested download from anywhere to purchase.

Otherwise ...

Server 2008 built with Vista stability

As Microsoft has pretty much lost the server market in all but the SOHO markets to Linux as Novell did to Microsoft, perhaps they should focus more on fixing Windows ME 2 (or Vista to the newer PC user).

I'm in the UK Ashlee, So I'll grab a copy via el reg... I just thought it was odd of the Reg to be pushing us to Amazon, instead of selling it direct thats all.
