Where can I find out which Operating Systems are supported?

Cheers,

Mike

It isn't in their custom menus, but they haven't disabled the standard BOINC page, so you can find the list at

Thanks Slicker, it's much appreciated. Our team are looking for AA candidates and I thought this project might be worth adding to the mix but we need to be able to let all our members get at it.

Most of the big ones use Linux. :-)

Unfortunately, the page only shows Windows. Oh well, maybe next time.

Cheers, Mike.

In actually Mike (ADHC), the most common DC OS platform is windows based. Yes there are 'some' large Linux 'farms' but they arent 'most'. Look at any project's top participant's computer list (if they arent hidden) and Window OS leads the pack with Linux and MAC in trail. Sometimes it's mix of both with windows generally being the leader.

I am not sure why not having a Linux app would be a problem. In looking at your BOINC@AUSTRALIA team member's computers , I see that most of them are WIN OS based anyway (includint yours). Im sure in time, CAS@H will be available on all OS platforms, but for now your team (and you) will do just fine attached to this project. And it's good science! Happy crunching!
