I think I even overestimated Linux. Maybe 32 cores max. But enlighten me, show me a link to x86 server with more than 32 (okay, maybe 48) cores.

And just because it is used on some kind of machine doesn't mean it works well. I could tell you stories from experience how "unbrekable" Oracle Linux is on 8 core AMD server.
