Distrubuted Operating Systems

I was just thinking of those big computer clusters and stuff like SETI@home that process complex problems and thought that these could have better distributed operating systems.  I found this version of the C programming language designed for parellelism at  Maybe it would help.  Another thing that would help is to have some of the software instruction to be offloaded from the CPU to other hardware.  I know there are TCP offloading engines.  For render farms used in video production, I know a company called Aspex Semiconductors,, that designs processors and expansion cards that help accelerate encoding while there are many sound cards w/ DSPs that would also help.
