Supercomputing superpowers (BBC article)

BBC article [requires Flash] on the Top500 list. What I found interesting was firstly to what extent Linux dominates, as shown in the diagram below, and also how well the UK did relative to our size and status as a country (mainly due to four huge supercomputers in Edinburgh and at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts in Reading).

The BBC continues to lead the way in educating people about statistics.
