Sounds pretty cool and the intergration into Active Directory will be useful, but Microsoft has to prove a lot for this to catch on and have people implement it.

Aside from the fact that this "article" is in fact just a fact sheet on the Microsoft website, and the summary is just a straight copy-paste from the first paragraph of said fact sheet, is anybody else severely underimpressed with this? I mean, OS X has Xgrid (and has for a -long- time). Many high-demand apps have built-in support for parallel operation (distcc, almost every 3d rendering app). What this seems to offer (after trudging through the marketspeak) is integration with Visual Studio, which I thought already had support for parallel compilation. Thus, I am led to believe that this allows one to develop clustering apps using Visual Studio, which is not exactly the most amazing development in the world of Windows-based software ever. A thoroughly boring "article".

I agree.

"and the Windows operating system to provide a secure and affordable high performance computing (HPC) solution."

anyone who believes or buys into the above quote has no idea what a true OS is. not to mention security or MS licensing.

Its so easy to kill any attempt of counter-arguing by saying "you have no clue if you do not agree".

This forum is really deteriorating...
