Hey guys!!

I have decided that I am going to switch my home operating system over to ubuntu now that I see no use in having windows.

It is this host:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=5377497

Can someone please suggest and give links to the best optimised applications to use. I will be using the most recent version of BOINC and a 64-bit operating system. This computer is also CUDA enabled. I am already currently running the most recent version of the Lunitics unified installer. However, I have manually set up my other ubuntu machine. Lunatics links would be preferred because I trust their sources.

Also will I be able to merge my windows and ubuntu computers in my profile? Or does the system not allow operating systems to be different?

Thanks
Hammeh

NB: I have already started to drain my WU cache :P

No, you can't do that, because of the operating system change. It'll show as two different hostIDs in the database. Which you can leave for keepsake, or delete the old one once all its tasks from its taskslist have been purged from the database.

Don't forget to install the 32bit compatibility libraries if you want to run other projects, such as Einstein on it.
