Linux’s many strengths are undeniable in numerous aspects of computing today, but if there’s one area in which its domination tends to continue virtually unchallenged, it’s supercomputing.
Last November’s Top500 list was a perfect illustration of that ongoing reign and now the latest version of that list brings even more good news for Linux fans.
Linux took more than 95% of the top500 supercomputers list.
Linux continues its domination of the Top500 supercomputer list “with all of the top 10 and more than 90 percent of systems relying on clustered Linux,” said Jay Lyman, a senior analyst for enterprise software at 451 Research.
Most notably, in the 41st Top500 list, which was announced Monday at the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference in Leipzig, Germany, Linux’s share of the world’s fastest machines had increased yet again by more than another percentage point to 95.2 percent.
