Top 500 Supercomputer OS Share

Top500 has released its latest Supercomputer list and Linux now represents over 75% of the top 500. That means 389 (or 77.80%) of the fastest (reported) supercomputers in the world run some Linux variant. That’s up from 65.20% in November of 2006. Windows made what I believe is its first appearance on the list, but according to this article that machine has been “rebooted as a Linux cluster”.
