So the software is still called Grid Engine even though the project is
open Grid Scheduler?

The scalablelogic.com website looks more than a bit unfinished. Some
details of the optional commercial support would be appreciated.
Just typed "open grid scheduler" into google (in order to get a link
to the project page) and top of the results is an ad from Univa.
We're currently still on 6.2u3 and obviously need to pick a successor
version. My current thinking on the non-technical advantages of the
various Grid Engine Successors
Oracle: Commercial support from a Really Big Company
Univa: Commercial support by a company that employs most of the
original grid engine developers.
Open Grid Scheduler: Commercial support available for a 100% open
Son of Grid Engine: 100% Open source project (modulo Fritz's comments
re:documentation) plus a huge easily accessible bug/feature request
Presumably the other versions could clone Dave's bug database since
he cloned it from the original SGE bug tracker and most of the bugs
to the other versions as well.
