Some of you may already know about this site:
According to the system specs
there, this project appears to be
Windows only--unlike the similar
but separate activity called the
World Community Grid . . .
. . . which states that it offers a
Linux version. In any case, an
important contribution might be
made if the FOSS world could
start or increase its participation
in such projects.
These grids also would seem to
have a great deal of potential as
showing students more about
what computers can do.
BTW: I've had the grid.org software
running on my Win XP Pro
machine at home for some time.
