Recount of the (almost) available systems

In this section we give a recount of all types of systems as discussed in the former section. When of a certain system various models are available, we will discuss them all at once. So, for instance, we will discuss Convex systems under one entry, SM-MIMD systems, even if a one-processor model of such a system strictly should be discussed under the SM-SIMD heading. We rather regard such systems a special cases of a general product line.
