    It never really matters does it? Tomorrow we have a faster and smaller supercomputer, and the day after that, another faster one will fill it's spot, still waiting for Multivac , is entrophy revertable by the way?

    Just imagine Prince -"Could you be....the most powerful comp in the world"...

    On second thoughts, maybe not. Isn't the new PS3 capable of 3 Teraflops though? Kinda disheartening to think that the best piece of kit on the world is only 30 times faster than a set top console.

    Wonder if desktop computers will be more powerful than that computer in about 20 years, or so?

    It wouldn't surprise me at all...

    considering the major computer advances in the last five years, its quite possible really
    Linux is for those who want to know why their computer works.

    I still think all these super computers have nothing on "us". A DNA Computer has a lot more processing capacity than any transistor will ever have (BTW, that article is a nice read).

    that computer would make one hell of a CS server
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
