I get this really neat window with dry stats. Is there some sort of GUI like the old on?

I also used StarMap is there some sort of app like that for BOINC?

The BOINC client is the GUI. Are you talking about a screensaver? Yes, there is a screensaver. If you right click on a WU, you have the option to "show graphics".

If you are using Windows, then yes. Head over to BoincSpy and get that. It has a starmap.

what about a boincspy for linux users. boinc on linux is just like the cmdline version of s@h would love to see a lin-boinc or a ksetiboinc

There's a boincgui, but you need to compile it yourself.
There's boinctop, which is a command line tool which tells you the progress.

If you start boinc with
boinc -allow_remote_gui_rpc
you can use something like boincview to connect to your linux boxes and administer machines, attach to projects etc.. graphically.
I was able to run boincview under wine using knoppix (it's a huge performance hit though)


http://sourceforge.net/projects/boinctop/

http://boincview.amanheis.de/

and Boinc lists Boincgui, boincstat here.
