Linux.com has an article on using ParallelKnoppix to build clusters quickly.
After a year without updates, Quantian 0.7.9.1 has been released. Quantian is one of the most complete LiveDVDs available for scientific work, including over 800 R packages and clustering support.
There’s a new version of ParallelKnoppix out, and OSDir has the screenshots.
Dirk Eddelbuettel blogs about slides he just released for a talk he gave on Quantian and distributed statistical computing. Probably worth reading if you run a lot of R jobs, or are interested in high performance clusters.
