“To be exact, 391 are running their own house-brand of
Linux. 62 are running one version or another of Novell’s SUSE

Linux). Red Hat and its relatives, including CentOS, comes in
second with 16 supercomputers.

IBM’s AIX Unix, with 22 computers, is the only serious competitor.
Microsoft and Sun, with Windows HPC 2008 and OpenSolaris are barely
in the running with 5 supercomputers for Windows and a mere pair
for OpenSolaris.”
