Questions About Modern Computing

Do you run a distributed computing client on your computer?

On my old machine, I ran distributed.net's client. I like the idea behind the effort, cracking encryption through brute force, I also always enjoyed the ideal behind Seti@Home. It's kinda romantic, searching for extra-terrestrial intelligence. So with my new machine, I started looking around.

I come across climateprediction.net, which uses the same software as seti@home called BOINC. It's cool how all these different projects all work under the same software. Brilliant idea.

Oh also, I'm just curious. I'm using Windows Vista for the first time and I'm actually kinda impressed.
