wonder what Intel's thinking - could do some very interesting stuff,
but it would take a bit of charisma. QPI-over-IB anyone?
I'm not crazy about Intel being a vertically-integrated HPC supplier
(chips, systems, interconnect, mpi, compilers - I guess they still
don't have their own scheduler or sexy cloud branding ;)
the world is a better place when each level has internal competition
based on useful, open (free), multi-implementation standards.
