I love good news! Enterprise ready, anyone?

"The National Science Foundation said it will spend $53 million to build a massive computing grid that will be the most powerful of its kind ever completed and could lead to ground-breaking research that would have otherwise taken years, if not decades, to complete.

"...The DTF, which will be connected using Qwest Communications International Inc.'s 40-gigabit-per-second network, will be built by International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) , using Intel Corp.'s (NASDAQ:INTC) Itanium microprocessors and the Linux operating system. More than a thousand IBM servers and 3,300 next-generation Itanium McKinley chips will comprise the DTF."
