1,000 trillion calculations per second? Yikes!!! I can't even fathom that.

And of course they are running it on Redhat Linux. :D

I don't think I could handle using a computer that advanced as a PC. I wouldn't be able to keep up with it's 1337ness. It would always be one step ahead of whatever you are about to do.

You go to turn on your computer, but realize that while you were taking your morning wizz, the computer already loaded the OS, and filed all your reports for you.

Thank God is running Linux, with Windows it would probably be a supercomputer running 1trillion errors per second

1000 trillion calculations per second? it prorobly has figured out the answer to everything but has decided that we don't deserve to know the answers. well, if i had a computer like that, i would like tell it to something useful...like delete internet explorer, or send bill gates 1000 trillion spam emails.
