Ubuntu is a little ahead of Debian in terms of some of the cluster  
software it contains.  For example, gluster is in Ubuntu 8.10, but is  
not in Debian Lenny.  It is in Debian's development tree, but won't  
hit a production Debian release for God knows how long.  :-)  You can  
always install Ubuntu without any of the GUI gubbins.


 The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is operated by Genome Research 
 Limited, a charity registered in England with number 1021457 and a 
 company registered in England with number 2742969, whose registered
