Confessions of the World's Largest Switcher

From an article on O'Reilly Network... by Daniel H. Steinberg:

Excerpt:
His ad might go something like this. "I was in the market for a new machine. I was hoping to get ten teraflops by the end of the year. I'd never used a Mac and had been looking at Dells and IBMs. Then Apple released the G5 on June 23. A week later I bought 1,100 duals online at the Apple Store. I'm Srinidhi Varadarajan and I build Supercomputers at Virginia Tech."

Their latest numbers are at almost 10 TeraFlops which puts them as the third fastest in the world.
