Hah! Not only is Linux faster, than all the other shit, it’s even faster than EVER!
China continues to develop more and faster machines. It now has almost half (227) of the world’s fastest supercomputers. At the same time, the US-based system remains near its all-time low at 118. That said, American systems are, on average, significantly larger and faster. So, in terms of aggregate performance, US supercomputers still have a 37.8% share of the list. China is close behind with a 31.9% performance share. China is gaining. The June 2019 list had the US with 38.4% of the list’s aggregate performance and China with 29.9%
Regardless of the hardware, all 500 of the world’s fastest supercomputers have one thing in common: They all run Linux.
