Ok guys.. no offence.. but yous are getting off-topic.. I appreciate that my thread has created a bit of talk.. but it is really hijacking it.
I just want to clarify that Folding@Home is actually run by a group within Stanford Uni called Pande Group. It's totally not for profit.. and 'Papers' are written with the reasearch gained by the project. These papers are available free to everyone.. so any scientist or whatever can use what they've learned to further their own research.. Pande Group will never 'sell' results or 'sell' their distributing computing power.
Folding@Home is the most powerful supercomputer in operation.. just at 5 Petaflops now! The Petaflop was only broken in late 2007 by F@H.. so we've come a long way through use of PS3s and GPU systems. But I would like to think that distributed computing is something everyone can get involved in.. not just computer enthusiasts.. becoz when you think about it.. it has such potential. People can choose what to put their computers power towards (as they're are many DC projects out there) but i believe F@H is the most worthy, and thats why i support it so much.
Any more wackos wanna put-down my thread.. go ahead.. BUT please start your own separate thread first called 'I'm putting down Folding@Home because i haven't done any research into it'
Any team members?
EDIT: Thanks daxxman.. didn't see your post before i starting my reply 😉
