Hello, Keith.

No, you are the only person to respond about MOSIX2 so far!

I've got to admit that although I'm very happy with my experience of 
openMosix I can't continue using it without the support of the rest of 
the openMosix community.

So far, I've been in touch with Amnon Barak (amnon at cs.huji.ac.il) who 
put me in contact with his MOSIX2 developer Amnon Shiloh 
u3557 at miso.sublimeip.com) of Shiloh Distributed Solutions Pty/Ltd.:


He confirmed that MOSIX2 is 'free' for academic use, but even so I would 
have to pay them $1,000 per year to obtain 'updates' and run the current 
version. I don't rule this out, but I'm not entirely happy about it.

Please let me know about other people you know who might be interested 
in using MOSIX2. I've cc'ed this email to the Beowulf list in case there 
are other people on the list using or interested in trying out MOSIX2.

Thanks for getting in touch,
