NNSA Sequoia supercomputer at Lawrence Livermore 16.32 sustained petaflops - running POWER architecture

And you can bet it probably runs Linux, too.

Fujitsu's 10.51 petaflop K supercomputer is pretty fast, but does it pack enough computational oomph to stave off underground nuclear testing? Proba

Ah, I knew that old iMac would come in useful ;-> Actually, so far it's been way more of a challenge than I'd anticipated, to get the PowerPC Sunflower running a current, fully-functional F/LOSS desktop: 
 
Main task right now is finding a web browser with per-site control over JavaScript. While Debian installed smoothly, it's IceWeasel is stuck at version 3.x. Chromium abandoned PPC a while back IIRC, So I may check KDE for Konqueror / rekonq, and/or dig into what's available in FreeBSD.
 
Heh heh the old stuff is still great!

Remember:

Yesterday's supercomputer is today's smartphone.

The computer that got me through engineering ran at 12 MHz.

This Galaxy Nexus runs at 1200 MHz, with two cores...
