Originally, SETI@home was going to "invite" people who ran SETI@home to "switch" to BOINC via email (to your "original2 S@h account email
address). I suppose this was - partly - to try to ensure that the data collected by S@h would get "crunched", rather than "risk" everybody
changing over at once and "abandoning" the original S@h program?? (Conjecture, but who knows??
Consequently, I've been awaiting for my invite email, as per my "original" BOINC question
way back in Feb 2003!!
As of *now*, I've yet to receive the invite
and, consequently, have decided to stay with SEI@home myself. This is for several reasons:
* As per above
* My completed 5000 WU's is now about 30 days off!!
* BOINC *still* seems to be beta/ alpha release (as per xn's excellent updates!
* ATS SETI@home team *still* exists (though not for much longer
) and it will be nice to get us as far up the All teams list as possible (as we
won't get another chance at it!!)
However, each to his/ her own and, as I've written before, I fully accept being in last place when I *do* change to BOINC!!
