    1010== What is the Limulus Project? == 
    11 Limulus is an acronym for '''LI'''nux '''MUL'''ti-core '''U'''nified '''S'''upercomputer. The Limulus project goal is to create and maintain an open specification and software stack for a ''personal workstation cluster''. Ideally, a user should be able to build or purchase a small ''personal workstation cluster'' using the Limulus reference design and low cost hardware. In addition, a freely available turn-key Linux based software stack will be created and maintained for use on the Limulus design. A Limulus is inteneded to be a ''workstation cluster platform'' where users can develop software, test ideas, run small scale applications, and teach HPC methods. Consult the following draft of a Linux Magazine [http://limulus.basement-supercomputing.com/attachment/wiki/WikiStart/Limulus-Nov-2007-draft.pdf?format=raw Limulus Article] (pdf) for more information. The Limulus idea actually came from the 2005 [https://www.clustermonkey.net/Projects/the-value-cluster-cheaper-better-faster.html AMD Value Cluster Project]. 
     11Limulus is an acronym for '''LI'''nux '''MUL'''ti-core '''U'''nified '''S'''upercomputer. The Limulus project goal is to create and maintain an open specification and software stack for a ''personal workstation cluster''. As "edge of cloud" computing becomes more important, these systems are designed to offer HPC, Big Data (Hadoop-Spark), and Deep Learning in almost any location. Ideally, a user should be able to build or purchase a small ''personal workstation cluster'' using the Limulus reference design and low cost hardware. In addition, a freely available turn-key Linux based software stack will be created and maintained for use on the Limulus design. A Limulus is intended to be a local ''workstation cluster platform'' where users can develop software, test ideas, run '''edge applications''', and teach HPC methods. Consult the following draft of a Linux Magazine [http://limulus.basement-supercomputing.com/attachment/wiki/WikiStart/Limulus-Nov-2007-draft.pdf?format=raw Limulus Article] (pdf) for more information.

    2628== Project Status == 
     29'''February 03, 2019:''' More commercial news. First, tested systems with six-core/six-thread Xeon E-2176G (these chips run at 80W vs 65 W for i5,i7, Limulus cooling works)  Check out more news about Xeon/ECC Limulus, rack-mount options and more at [http://basement-supercomputing.com/ Basement Supercomputing]. (STL files are almost ready)

     31'''November 12, 2018:''' We are getting ready to release the STL files for 3D printing brackets for the tower Limulus machines. Over at [http://basement-supercomputing.com/ Basement Supercomputing], systems with new six-core i5-8600 and 6-core/6-thread i7-8700.

    2733'''November 11, 2016:''' After a long silence, we have news. First, benchmarks for Coffee Lake (Intel) and Raven Ridge (AMD) will be available real soon. Second, [http://basement-supercomputing.com/ Basement Supercomputing], who sponsors this project, has converted all the metal brackets needed to place a Limulus system in a commercial case to 3D-Printed parts. They will also be releasing the files needed to print the parts to the community.
