Subject: Why not NT clusters? Need arguments.
In a disussion of clusters I got the question why not using
running microsoft NT. I only came up with cost and stability
sweeping way, and I couldnt present more quantitative
I even found that an nt cluster sits on place 207 on the
is that an exception, or are there many of these beasts
I would appreciate to be enlightened on this issue.
I don't think it is possible to install the cluster without
the graphic card.
So you end up with N useless graphic cards using N PCI
you money and completly useless.
I don't think you can remove the X server, so you loose N
memory to run it.
