All depends on what you mean by "all" the desktop applications.  If by "all"
you mean those that come with the distro then yes, but of course.  However,
they will not be taking advantage of any of the additional resources in the
Cluster then the node they are running on

Dear friends,
Can Beowulf with Linux run all the desktop applications? Will they run
faster?
