The problem with that is if an openmoxis node is rebooted, it will generally kill the application and hang the machine that it was launched from. A server cluster makes much more sense for things like this.

the sane way is to use the *servers* for the cluster and to keep
the clients simple and cheap. The justification is rather simple: serers
stay up, terminals wink in and out of existence. beefing up the servers
makes sense - all gain advantage, beefing up terminals yields no real
advantage. think *thin* terminal *fat* severs. julius
...and openMosix cluster the "fat servers" on the backend! Surely someone
out there is at least doing that!!
