I think you will find a number of persons on this list
hold the 
definition of the Beowulf to be quite different than
the elitist concept 
you propose.  While having extensive knowledge and
experience will 
necessarily produce a much more efficient and well
designed cluster, the 
acquisition of such is only possible through a
starting point.  What 
better starting point than with commodity hardware and
free and open 
software?  Such are fundamentals of the Beowulf.
