q1) How about the BeOS? ... any reports on attempts or successes in  
using BeOS on clusters and multiprocessor systems?

Considering that the latest iterations of BeOS seems to have been  
specifically targeted at multiprocessor, multitasking projects, this  
might seem to be a natural ... and not just a toy of garage shops

q2) Anyone examining the IBM Cell processor? ... Is this processor  
worthy of consideration for clusters and multiprocessor systems?

Same, same for the IBM Cell processor = targeted at the future  
multiprocessor markets and not just game systems (like Sony  
Playstation 3).
