I have a friend that has a Beowolf setup and he seems pretty happy with it. I've been pondering the idea myself and I thought I'd check here to see if anyone here actually uses Beowolf and how satisfied they are with it. Thx in advance.

Sorry. Forgot about the other Beowolf. Hehe. He says that he has about 8 computers all networked together and hooked up sharing resources and acting as one super computer.

ah...then no...not a clue..

however...IN GENERAL for home use clustered machines don't usually give the desired effect.....clustered systems are GENERALLY for doing number crunching and high level calculations and such....

typically you're not going to get some super awesome gaming rig by clustering a bunch of computers together...

That's what my initial thought was, but he is useing it as a personal PC so I wasn't sure. He also uses it as a server for family and friends and also does stock market trading with it and has it crunch some numbers there, so who knows.
