Which operating system powers the world’s most famous supercomputer and Jeopardy contestant? The answer is SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11. Watson, developed by IBM, recently won a Jeopardy practice round against previous champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter and is scheduled to be on the game show on Feb 14 and 16.

Watson runs on IBM’s high-performance, high-capacity Power servers and SUSE Linux Enterprise is the fastest operating system on POWER7, making it an ideal choice for Watson.

This is another significant achievement for Linux which currently runs most of the top supercomputers. Only a Linux operating system has the flexibility and computing capacity to run one of the world’s most powerful computers.
