Probably not what most of us would expect, but I like their choice of name:

Laughed my ass off when I read an article linked from techmeme.com about the "new" HP Apollo machines.

Then promptly forgot about them, which I imagine most people will. Oh they'll be fine machines, and improved cooling would be nice, but I didn't see anything I could tell was a different approach. Big pile of servers. Infiniband. Rack(s). Nothing novel mentioned (yet?) on the OS, library, or application side.

Or did I miss it, as could so easily happen?
