So far, there is no 'commercial software' for these kinds of machine. It's all either 'secret software' (as in the NNSA's application), or 'open-source software' scratched together by researchers on top of what universities have written over the decades.

The machines are there, and provision of the 21st-century equivalents of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office must be a business opportunity for someone.

And it's not just the IBM machines. I think Intel have the same problem ... or opportunity ... over what to do with their 80-processor chips from their research labs.

Floods, droughts, pollution and climate change have created even more problems. It is important that China play an increasingly prominent role on climate change. right??
