CLIC is not exactly a beowulf distribution but a project to make the
Mandrake Linux distribution cluster-aware. 
It means that Mandrake may include OSCAR components, NPACI Rocks
components, etc and use them as possible cluster managers.

This is not innovation, just GPL and the right guys doing the right
things:Mandrakesoft (and Red Hat) building rpms and glueing components, 
and others working on single system image and performance.
