Do Seti@home and Einstein@home projects share data and/or work results?

I ask because I am considering dropping Einstein all together. It has been taking 12 hours, or more, to finish the Einstein work units on my PC. If they both benifit from each others data I'll keep both.

No, they are different projects, with different data sources and analysis tools.

Actually their original source data is more closely related than you might realize. For Einstein's pulsar search, at Arecibo both get data from the same spot, but from there the data diverges. For Einstein's gravitational wave search, totally different data.

Then I think I will let Einstein go. Seti@home was the project that started all this volunteer computing for science. Although Setis roots are probably in the Beowulf project.
