    Just checked the top 100, 200 and 300 BOINC computer systems.

    Top 100 - 6% are Linux systems

    Top 200 - 6.5% are Linux systems

    Top 300 - 8% are Linux systems

    Top 400 - 7.25% are Linux systems

    Top 500 - 7.6% are Linux systems.

    The Mac OS/X share appeared to be about half (or less) then the Linux share,
    giving non-MS OSes about 10% of the top 500 comsputers.

    Linux systems have more time to waste because they are not doing
    anything productive ? :)

    It may not interest you.....but it interested me...and I shared it.

    There will be others who are interested - though you may not be among them.

    I would have though that to be two-edged argument - easily employed against
    the 90% of systems that are running Windows.......

    Careful might cut yourself. Too late!!! :)

    Aside from points such as Linux vs. windows, are you guys receiving work
    units through boink? Mine just attaches to the server and the server either
    says 'no work available' or rpc communication too recent' and goes to sleep
    for a random time.

    I have been getting no new work.....but I had enough WUs for 8 days.

    Based on past experience with [email protected] I assumed the "official" start of BOINC
    would be got in early (first system is 16,000-ish) and
    loaded up.

    lol who knows...

    as some other guy said, geeks (usually linux ones) tend to be early
    adopters to this thing..

    personally iam waiting for some more worthy causes to write plugins to
    bionic - not that finding little green men in a haze of random radio noise
    isnt a worthy cause.

    blimy, wouldnt want to offend anybody ;)

    hunters ;-)
