IMNSHO: SLURM, Torque, and N1GE are all fine products. They work
well in production environments, both small and large. They all have
default trivial FIFO schedulers but can also be used with more
complex schedulers (e.g., Maui/Moab).

FWIW: I tend to like SLURM simply out of personal preference; that's
what I use on my Cisco development and testing clusters. I'll echo
Jeff P's sentiments that the SLURM developers are very responsive to
questions and fixing problems.
