I'm fully aware of the Beowulf epic, having read several translations,
associated literature, and films. However, I do thank all of you for taking
a stab at Why? "Beowulf" and not "Thor", "Superman", "THX", etc. One of the
quotes does clarify the name of D. Becker and Company's new venture "Scyld",
but I am interested in why call a cluster of PCs "Beowulf". I think the
slaying Grendel by calling together the united forces of individual warriors
is significant, but maybe Don Becker and crew can answer this one. Thanks
for the creative help.
