I think that (to most people, and probably not to people on this list)
that there's not that same distiction. Anyways, I said a trend in
Supercomputing[1] not a trend in Supercomputers[2].

[1] "Thing" that collectively can do work together and attain speeds of
multi-Gflops that are high enough to make the TOP500 list.

[2]"Cool computers" I'd like to own and that Dave McGuire has in his
