Default The biggest-little revolution: 10 single-board computers for under $100

These small single board computers fascinate me. Wonder how networkable they are?

They remind me of the MS-DOS cards plugged into a STD bus "mainframe" where there was a master with several slaves, local & shared memory, and all used to control a pot making machine. LOL Long long ago and far far away. That would be flower pots by the way.

Jamie has been rather fascinated with this sort of computing, and owns one or two RPis. I think they're pretty interesting, but they just haven't grabbed me... kind of a "cool if you can use it" thing, but I have no interest in dabbing in it myself. I've heard of people using like up to 20 RPis, networked together, to build a little "super computer".
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
