By definition, a beowulf cluster uses a free/open OS.  So, a beowulf
cluster can't run windows.  However, an HPC (High Performance Computing)
cluster doesn't have that requirement.

I know its kinda nitpicking to try to distinguish between Beowulf
cluster and HPC cluster, but in some ways it is important.
