a question on GIMPS

Postby pacionet » Sat Sep 24, 2005 7:58 pm

Is it possible that in future GIMPS and many other projects will be rewritten for BOINC platform ?

I think we will soon come to a point where many projects will have to be rewritten for BOINC if they want a lot of participants. As more people try BOINC projects, they learn how easy it is to participate multiple projects through one interface, and how they don't have to worry that their computer(s) might be unproductive when one project is down, because BOINC will automatically switch to projects which are up. And when there are two similar projects, one which runs on BOINC and one which doesn't, they will stop participating in the project which doesn't run on BOINC.
