linux on IBM's BlueGene

When i was browsing about high performance computing for a seminar i came across links on

blue gene..the fastest super computer from IBM..they announced blue gene in 1999 which was

initially developed to facilitate and speed up scientific protein

test simulations

Blue Gene is the successor of deep blue,the super computer which defeated gary kasprov in a chess competition..
