Hardware, Embedded Systems "There are dozens of other massively multiprocessor projects - known alternatively as distributed computing, grid computing, or volunteer computing - that can take advantage of your otherwise unused CPU cycles in an effort to do things like predict global climate change, calibrate particle accelerators, or develop drugs to combat cancer and AIDS. We decided to look into whether these projects have actually accomplished anything or were just spinning CPU cycles unnecessarily and making their users feel virtuous."

TeamHaiku uses 17orBust

A fairly comprehensive look into distributed computing, but I'd like to know what made them choose electricsheep over, say SeventeenOrBust (an effort to solve the SierpinskiProblem). Maybe that helps their balance of useful/unuseful projects?
