Ok has any one experimented with diffrent OS's and the Benchmark part of the BOINC CLI app..

If so what have you findings been on diffrent windows OS's.. Whats the fastest.. for any given hardware platform.. I may experiment here with diffrent OS confuigs to find the fastest solution.

One of the participants here collects benchmarks and posts them on a web page. You may find some info you're looking for there -

That helped, seems that no one has done NT4, this is what I used on my last version of my farm systems... worked pretty well and install was very small, I could run on very low ram amounts and small hard disks like under 500mb...

I may experiment with NT4 again on the new BOINC client... I have since switched over all my nodes to either my linux floppy seti OS or BartPE for running without a hardisk.. may have to consider NT4 again as its looking like I need to have a OS on a hardisk to run the BOINC client.
