 Linux Super Computer Named After Gen. Powell

Linux Electrons tells us about a Linux based Super Computer.

"The 256-processor system designed for ARL, dubbed "Powell," is capable of performing 1.7 trillion operations per second (teraflops). The Powell cluster, recently ranked 113th on the Top 500 list (http://www.top500.org), exceeded rigorous effectiveness and capability testing requirements prior to delivering critical computations and simulations to MSRC users"
