*Pet's ibook g4* Mac's have built in task distrubution software. If I took 4 ibook g4's and connected them all to a 4 port hub, I could distribute a task like encoding a movie or the such just buy enabling it in the system preferences. Any other os is probably 10X harder to get going, not to mention the software you have to "buy".

It used to be VERY SIMPLE back when they All had COM/RS-232C ports!

Yeah, it kind of depends on what OS is being used and really, which type of computer (pc, mac, midframe, mainframe, superC, etc ).
