    Is having to do with Linux a requirement? Anyway, the iPad is capable of running open source software. Also, the source code to significant parts of its operating system is available on Apple's website.

    The difference:

    then: CRAY-2 users/operators ---> SuperUsers
    now Apple Ipad users ---> Faggots

    This is ancient news

    Top500 and Linpack co-manager Dr. Jack Dongarra already published the iPad 2/Cray-2 equality - back in May 2011, see http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/0...puter-of-yore/ .

    Thing is, if this were a normal supercomputer they were testing against from back then, I think the iPad would have fared much better. The early Cray supercomputers were designed for very specific workloads and designed accordingly. That being said, they would fare pretty poorly in any more general benchmark.

    Not really. The Communication between devices are not for free.
