G'Day !

What is the cost per node ?
What is the minimum hardware requirements per node ? 
What about licences and what is the cost ?
NT 4.0 would not boot without monitor and keyboard attached.  Do I need to 
by a monitor and keyboard for every node in my 20,000 (hypothetical) node 
cluster ?
What about remote admin ?  Do I need to put Back Orifice on all my nodes ?

The list goes on and on ....

This is just a publicity stunt so  M$ can say they have a scientific 
cluster solution in advertising ...

important than that !!!
