True. The problem that I had in filling in that box is a question of
"are we talking hardware or software?". As Sean pointed out earlier,
with a home-rolled solution, the question becomes one of which HW
vendor gives the best support for cluster component purchases. When
taken in the context of the various "cluster-in-a-box" solutions, the
question becomes one of which distribution do you like the best?
But heck, with the prospect of winning an iPod, I did my best to
answer both :-)
