PAGASA's Got Linux Supercomputer!

Can i just shoutout, "Woot!!!" PC World Australia has a post on PAGASA (Philippine Weather Bureau) running a Debian Linux Cluster (PHP2 Million).

Apparently their old supercomputer, an SGI (PHP25 Million) was out computed by their new, more powerful and way cheaper built and operated gear. Cost per month to run their Debian Linux cluster was put at PHP10,000 as opposed to PHP200,000 month for their old SGI gear.

This is awesome news!
