Earlier this week, BBC News published a short article about the bi-annual “Top 500 supercomputer list.” An interactive “tree map” created using Prefuse Flare software, developed by the University of California Berkeley, allows a user to easily see different views of the list, according to attributes such as  speed, operating system, manufacturer and country (shown below).
