I'd attribute the slow distribution of Linux-only tasks to the fact that relatively few participants are running Linux vs. Windows, therefore it takes a lot longer to drain the supply of ready-to-run models.

This shouldn't be a big surprise given the predominance (still) of Windows on Intel-based desktop/laptop systems. Running Linux may be a bit more challenging than Windows or OSX, but it seems a worthwhile contribution to CPDN's efforts.

perhaps if we want a thread to discuss the relative merits of different systems cafe cpdn is where we could continue it? There we could have the traditional (polite to comply with the posting rules) flamewar!

I am a Linux user running CPDN on this SUN workstation vintage 2008. But having bought a HP PC with Windows 8 on it, soon updated to 8.1 and now to Windows 10, I am running on it 4 CERN projects using Virtual Box, plus at times SETI@home tasks and Einstein@home tasks making use of its (very slow) GPU board. I have nothing againts Windows 10, but it reboots randomly outside its updates,since I have asked Microsoft to notify me of any update needing a reboot. It has a 64-bit A10-6700 AMD CPU with 4 cores and 20 GB RAM for the Atlas@home tasks. But I am not running any CPDN on it since its tasks don't like frequent reboots. Linux never reboots except on electric blackouts, very rare.

I am running Win7 on 3 laptops with 10 cores total (5 physical and 5 virtual) plus seti@home on the graphic chip on one machine. They are loaded to the gills. I have never observed any of them to reboots randomly. Maybe it is something with you machine, perhaps it id some piece of incompatible software that is causing it.

It works perfectly on the CERN projects, but I have to manually restart the Summer Challenge of vlHC@home after every reboot. It was suggested to me that reboots may be caused by Microsoft telemetry.Windows 10 sends data to Microsoft, which causes many discussions in the SETI@home message boards. Many users with Windows 7 do not want to upgrade to Windows 10. Since I bought a PC with already Windows 8 on it I have no Windows 7 or earlier.

I was plagued with random reboots on my Windows machines for some time, despite having Windows notify me whenever a reboot was required. I eventually identified Microsoft Security Essentials as the culprit. It didn't play by the notify-first rules. So I binned it. Now all is as it should be.
