Clusters do not require Linux -- in fact, a nice Solaris cluster was
recently built at William & Mary:
SciClone is a heterogeneous cluster, using 64 Ultra 5 (single CPU
machines), 32+6 Ultra 60 (dual CPU machines), 4 Enterprise 420R servers
(quad CPU each) and an Ultra 60 front end machine. This is a rich
environment designed to support a wide variety of research activities.
