Seti became Boinc, and with that its client changed and it's not fun anymore.

 It's still serving the same purpose for the same people, it's just running off a new code base.

How could you leave out World Community Grid? It's one of the largest. They work on several humanitarian projects at once. I joined it almost 4 years ago.

Grid computing is great during idle time, or to use up the cpu cycles you're not using while at your pc, but be warned, leaving your system on 24/7, when typically you would normally only have it on a few hours a day can potentially raise your electric bill anywhere from $10 to $30 above it's norm, (closer to the higher amount with the machines the people on this forum usualy build)

It's not a question of merit; it's a question of space.  I only profile five apps each week, and at some point, one has to make the cut!

That said, I'm definitely familiar with World Community Grid, and would urge those interested in distributed computing to check it out as well.
