Erik Andersen continues to claim ownership of BusyBox v0.60.2 although he has contributed no executable code to the compiled BusyBox binary at all -- it doesn't get any more dishonest than this.

455 systems are powered by Linux.  5 systems by Windows.

Thomas Watson, Jr, IBM's CEO, noted in a famous memo to IBM employees: "Last week, Control Data ... announced the 6600 system. I understand that in the laboratory developing the system there are only 34 people including the janitor. Of these, 14 are engineers and 4 are programmers... Contrasting this modest effort with our vast development activities, I fail to understand why we have lost our industry leadership position by letting someone else offer the world's most powerful computer." To which Cray replied: "It seems like Mr. Watson has answered his own question."
