i want a clustering os with a single process space

i want to experience the dream of true single-system-image clustered computing

i want to be able to connect a new computer to my desk's subnet, power it on, and when it comes online i see four new cores and a few extra gigs of ram attached to my system, already seamlessly being used by background tasks

this actually has existed as patches to linux

projects like openmosix and kerrighed did this kind of stuff but stopped actively being developed around a decade ago

@ky0ko oh gosh I haven't thought about openmosix for a long time!

I think criu.org demonstrates that this could be done on a mainline kernel these days though!

@ky0ko I remember setting up a mosix cluster for POVRay
