Given that this a talk to a LUG, how about:

Introducing what a supercomputer is 
Take a look at the top500 list - and point out that around 90% of the systems there run Linux

Maybe as a theme for your talk take the Linux kernel - it runs on everything from an embedded device, though an Android phone,
through laptops and desktops right up to the biggest clusters and NUMA machines.
Stress that is is the SAME kernel.  (OK, Android, I know...)
