Folks,
 
In response to several questions/comments posted recently, here's a pointer to a Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research (CISER) case study on how they use parallel SAS on Windows-based clusters. 
 
I think it's telling as a straight forward upgrade for users of the SAS statistical packages.  Something that easily and fairly transparently allows folks like sociologists and economists who are big statisticians to exploit the power and scalability of Windows-based clusters.  Yes, Windows clusters can run traditional MPI and PVM applications, but also commercial applications like this that have native support running on Windows clusters.
