Hmm... I'm new to cluster calculations, so I don't know for example
what does HPC stands for.

As for MPI, afaik it is some library that has to be linked with a
program and the program has to use some functions of the library.
That means making the code dependant on the library.

When using mosix the code doesn't have to be modiffied - it can be
run either on a single machine (with no cluster specific software
installed) or on a cluster.

But thanks for the answers
