Summary: Client for Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing
The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a
software platform which supports distributed computing, primarily in
the form of "volunteer" computing and "desktop grid" computing. It is
well suited for problems which are often described as "trivially
parallel". BOINC is the underlying software used by projects such as
Einstein@Home,, the World Community
Grid, and many other distributed computing projects.

This package installs the BOINC client software, which will allow
your computer to participate in one or more BOINC projects, using
your spare computer time to search for cures for diseases, model
protein folding, study global warming, discover sources of
gravitational waves, and many other types of scientific and
mathematical research.
