Installed OS: Linux
We have ordered a new CPUs and mainboards for the IS MU application cluster. The mainboard is Tyan Tiger or something like that. I have checked all BIOS settings, and found the most interesting one:
It reads: "Installed O/S:" with the following choices: "Other", which is the default, and "Linux". I don't know whether this is a good sign of Linux being the mainstream OS, heavily supported by Tyan, or a bad sign of Linux having some incompatibility with this board.
The upgraded box also has the above monster cooler from ASUS, which looks like a beer barrel bitten by a blue-LED-equipped radioactive spider (image taken from the ASUS web site).
