I'm bored at work and happen to have lots of old winXP laptop's so I started thinking about clustering and I have a few questions.
1st - since i don't have a switch, I was wondering about using the wireless on the laptops and creating an ad-hoc network, then clustering them up - so i don't know if that is even possible
2nd - i would imagine that winxp has NO clustering capabilities, so it would have to be done with something else - hopefully a linux thing since it's free - and I'm only thinking about this to kill some time
3rd - is clustering just basically pooling together the resources of several computers - i guess the idea is the sum of several computers is greater than just one
4th - is clustering mostly used for server like things such as file sharing - could you cluster a bunch of pc's just to make one really great pc?
just wondering - when i'm bored i try to learn about things that i don't know.
