BOINC Reviews

Great idea, buggy client.

The concept of using idle CPU time to do something productive is admirable, but this software is Beta at best. Screen saver stopped working correctly two versions ago and they still haven't fixed it. Trying to get it up and running on Linux is a considerable challenge. That's unfortunate when there's so much potential here.

I just wanted to give an update and say that BOINC is wonderful on a Mac. I'm not as interested in the "screen saver" effects, although they are quite interesting now. I'm just glad that i'm help[ing to solve real world problems with almost zero cost (yes, a little more electricity). BOINC has come a long way since it's "Beta" days.
