Raspberry Pi Mega Cluster Costs More Than $5,000 to Build : Read more
This looks like an interesting project that I would like to do with only 4 Rpis ( at first).
However what OS is needed and can Python deal with multiprogramming and Multitasking?
Any suggestions for reading material are most welcome.
How does one split a Programme to cope with "N" RPis?

Hi... i would say install RPI Buster 32bit, It is the best to use if you are a novice/noob. you can do so much more with it. I use it in my mega cluster, well a version of it. I created my own version called SkynetOS, which you could do too. 32bit buster is far the best for the daily tasks you would need to do. Oh and Yes it can deal with Python ok. Multi tasking does work, but i find, when python multitasks while under heavy network load....it can cause the odd freeze. I got around that by limiting my Rpi connections to 300Mbps.
