Linux - The Choice of Supercomputers

As of June 2013, more than 95% of the world's 500 fastest supercomputers run some variant of Linux,[19] including all the 44 fastest.[20]
(from wikipedia) 

Think about that the next time someone claims that Windows is the superior operating system. If Linux is good enough for a multi-million dollar supercomputer than I think it can more than handle my PC. 

How much to supercomputers cost? They range in price from about 70 million dollars to over 200 million. That price doesn't include the cost of electricity. You should expect your light bill to be easily over a million bucks per year.
