- Check it out here:
You can use your idle computer to do calculations for better solar energy (CEP2), better water (C4CW), or to try to find cures to cancer etc. All results goes into Public domain.May 7, 2012
- Sounds great,! Does it work on Ubuntu? (It doesn't seem to say on the website...I really shouldn't have to do a lot of digging around on their site to find out what OS(s) it works with, so they need some work in that area...) Anyway I am much in favor of these kinds of projects.May 7, 2012
- You can get the Linux version boinc_6.10.58_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh from http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org
That is probably the best option if you want to run WCG as it probably is preconfigured for WCG. (There is a lot of other distributed projects than WCG).
BOINC not configured is in the Ubuntu repos:
