Re:PVM sux

I think you guys are missing the point. PVM IS intended for mathematicians, scientists and render farms, but nothing else. OpenMosix is totally different and its target usesages are totally different. PVM is not remotley intended for desktop usage or migrating a bunch of tasks to other machines (ie OpenMosix), it is intended for usage on clusters which can be hundreds, thousands of machines in size. That is the difference.
