SJSU Linux User Group

I stopped by the SJSU Linux User Group meeting this afternoon for the first time. It was fun even though only a couple of people showed up. Most of the people in the Linux club were actually CE majors instead of CS majors as I assumed they would be. The computer engineering guys were pretty cool. Anyway, they have a bunch of machines they want to turn into a cluster. Sounds like fun and obviously challenging but I wonder if it has any use. Everyone always gets excited about linking computers together to harness their combined power, but for what use? I think thats the problem behind that type of project, you need to have a use planned ahead of time.
