Yay, maybe I'll finally be able to participate again... Granted who knows if this will happen, as the two FAQ entries below look extremely similar...
Probably some canned response.
I gave up on this a long time ago, since it would sit there all day and night chugging along but never really did a whole lot, seeing that I had to run Crossover Office to help with windoze emulation so I could run the client under linux...
Why is there not a Linux client?
The software that we licensed for World Community Grid came only with a Windows client. The support team has an edict to provide a Linux client in 2005. The Linux client is currently in development and Alpha testing. Beta testing will start in September of 2005. The date for the public launch has not been decided yet. As soon as we know the public launch date, we will post it on this FAQ.
Well, it's almost October, but there is still hope, I guess. At least it looks like they were thinking about those oddball Linux people such as myself.
If the Linux client ever sees the light of day, they may even have a Mac version... Woo hoo, then I could have both machines here at the house kickin'.
Why is there not a Mac client?
The software that we licensed for World Community Grid came only with a Windows client. The support team has an edict to provide a Linux client in 2005. As soon as the Linux client is launched, we will look at working on a Mac client. If we develop a Mac client, it will be in early 2006. As soon as we have more information, we will update this FAQ.
If anybody sees the Linux beta pop up before I do, let me know and I'll try it out. We all know I'll probably forget about it by then. lol
