You left out the Department of Energy, which is a much bigger player than
the DoD.

Meaningful computational power has been available on desktops for quite a
while, and, if one desktop wasn't enough, you could always Beowulf it, which
isn't much different from what the DoE has been doing.

If you think flops is a good measure of the science you can do, you should
probably be in a different business.
