I find the initial question essentially impossible to answer.  The  
whole point of beowulf computing is that you can build it out of  
almost anything.  Most of the software is community driven.  The  
ideas are community driven.  The leaders are the community, not any  
one company.  The hardware is commodity.  I can't even name one when  
pushed to; I don't use any cluster software I had to buy, and the  
vendors who made my hardware are pretty much incidental - I could  
have used anyone.

And that answer to the first question makes the subsequent questions  
even more impossible to answer.

Looks like I don't get the video iPod.  :-)
