Of course you can cluster on Sparc without Linux...

At conferences, when I hear Beowulf people speak, I am frequently
disappointed by a lack of historical perspective. I get the impression that
many people think clustering started with Linux and Beowulf.  This couldn't
be further from the truth.  Clustering is quite old and outside of changes
to the kernel to support clustering, most of the major innovations in
cluserting pre-date Beowulf.
