I'm not sure what you mean there.To be fair, they mostly aren't *really* running Linux, they are rather using it as a kind of glue to stick their rather custom GPU and interconnect systems together.
Looks like someone failed Computing 101 with an F- if they wrote that.
The fact that the same Linux which runs on the world's fastest supercomputers is nearly the same as the Linux which runs on the Raspberry Pi is fantastic from an educational point of view. The same programming environment used to write programs that run on supercomputers can be learned by anyone with the time and interest to do so. I've just started a thread about constructing a Pi Zero cluster, configuring it and programming it in a way similar to a traditional supercomputer used for scientific computation.jahboater wrote: ↑Mon Dec 04, 2017 1:19 pmI thought this was interesting ...
Today, all 500 of the world's top 500 supercomputers are running Linux.
