:So, is this the kind of machine that Dragonfly is hoping to make
:the most of?
:(one product is a 12-cpu cluster in a desktop box, and the other
:is a 96-cpu cluster in a somewhat bigger box.  Transmeta CPU's
:to keep the power requirements down...)

   The clustering scheme that I am most intent on supporting is a LAN or
   WAN based cluster of discrete machines.  Think of, oh, setiathome running
   on tens of thousands of machines that look like one logical machine. 
   At the extreme end, of course.
