Urm... I know that for Unices (including Linux) there is PVM (parallel
virtual machine) which adds some sort of MIMD character to machines that
communicate over ethernet. I studied those principles for my MSc and at
that time, it was the best price/performance (like: free) package. BUT I
haven't looked at the man page, so it might be a bit hairy.
