455 systems are powered by Linux.  5 systems by Windows.

I consider this more a sign of failure of Microsoft's "High performance
computing Windows" initiative.

    Thomas Watson, Jr, IBM's CEO, noted in a famous memo to IBM
    employees: "Last week, Control Data ... announced the 6600 system. I
    understand that in the laboratory developing the system there are
    only 34 people including the janitor. Of these, 14 are engineers and
    4 are programmers... Contrasting this modest effort with our vast
    development activities, I fail to understand why we have lost our
    industry leadership position by letting someone else offer the
    world's most powerful computer." To which Cray replied: "It seems
    like Mr. Watson has answered his own question."
