I'm starting a new WWW site devoted to research and applications of Linux
in all aspects of high-performance computing, including parallel and
distributed systems, high-speed networks and interconnects, symmetric
multiprocessing, applications (including database systems, multimedia and
machine vision, and file servers), and parallel languages.

The goal of this page is to bring together links and documents on research
projects as well as commercial products involving the use of Linux in these

Linux is a free POSIX-compatible UNIX clone which runs on 386/486/Pentium
and Alpha-based systems. Because all of the source (including the kernel)
is copylefted, it's an attractive operating system for people involved in
operating systems and clustered-computing research. The complete operating
system and thousands of applications are free, and it runs on inexpensive
commidity PC hardware. 

I'd like to expose and promote Linux as an O/S alternative for research
and teaching in high-performance systems. The Linux-HPC page is

			        About USENET

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies
and research organizations. See USENET Archives.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
