Microsoft should have a thing where they give you their OS for free provided you give them all your spare cycles.

I'll bet that these folding@home type things will become very popular in the future. In 10 or 20 years when there's no such thing as a weak computer anymore (bottom of the line crap will be light years ahead of Sandy Bridge E processors) I'll bet that there will be fierce competition among organizations/companies/governments to get people to install their program so they can use the country's processing power for their own goals. No supercomputer will be able to come close to the processing power of hundreds of millions (or even billions) of peoples' home computers.

well, then you should also hope for ISP's to update their networks as well. And for the cost to go down.
