+ - Danish Wind Mill Giant donates supercomputer to University->

The computer from 2008 and already replaced by another monster at Vestas already came cheap — Price tag for the University... Pay for the transport and it is yours....

Now that's what I call corporate social responsibility — Imagine more companies donating supercomputers to Universities around the world in this way...

Here is a link to the article in English (google translate — gives a rough idea)
