The software and hardware the systems ran on is interesting as well, with Intel's processors composing nearly two-thirds of the 500 machines and AMD coming in under 20%. Of course, Linux was the operating system of choice for nearly everybody involved as it was found on 85% of the systems. That's considerable market share for sure. It really is some interesting stuff, particularly how fast the overall amount of performance has increased, with the BlueGene/L capable of 478.2 teraflops. You can read about the systems at the top500 site.
