An openMosix, CHAOS, Quantian, ClusterKnoppix news article by Alison Strahan:
Cupertino (April 14, 2005) - The openMosix Project has announced the release of openMosix version 2.6. Moshe Bar, openMosix founder and project leader, has announced the port of openMosix to Linux 2.6. This rewrite of openMosix includes the first port of openMosix to the AMD Opteron.
openMosix 2.6 for Opteron was first installed at the University of Pisa.
openMosix 2.6 moves much of the patchs code from the kernel to user space.
