IBM computers and Intel processors run the bulk of the world's 500 most powerful supercomputers, according to an annual ranking, which also found the performance of the top machines increasing quickly. IBM extended its lead in the latest top-500 list and can now claim ties to 44.8 percent of the systems and just over half of the total computing power in the rankings. HP ranked second, contributing 28 percent of the systems and 18.5 percent of the performance capabilities. No other computer maker could lay claim to more than 6 percent of the machines or computing power.

This is fascinating technology. IBM and Intel have made great inroads here. I suspect that with some additional R&D from the snack food industry these feats could be accomplished running on 100% transfats. I know there is a great deal of concern with respect to transfats, but a growing body of research suggests that transfats may in fact be good for your skin.
Once the technology is based on commodity transfats, Super Computers, like snack foods, will be a much more competitive industry.
