What is Distributed.net?
"As a "loosely knit" group of computer users from all over the
world, we take up challenges and run projects which require a lot of computing
power. We solve these by utilizing the combined idle processing cycles of our
members' computers. That's why we are called "distributed.net". Our
more official name is Distributed Computing Technologies Inc. (or DCTI in short)."
The Distributed.net client only uses your cpu's idle cycles. So most people
leave it running all the time (reccommeded for 600mhz cpu's and faster only)
