  • Description

    Boinc is open source software for volunteer and grid computing. Once installed it can use the unused CPU and GPU cycles on a computer to do scientific computing.

    It lets you donate your idle computer time to science projects like SETI@home, Climateprediction.net, Rosetta@home, World Community Grid, and many others.

    Upon launching the application you will be prompted to choose projects to support. You will also be able to regulate the percentage of time that BOINC is allowed to compute in the application’s comprehensive options panel.
