Personal background
Nowadays mostly personal account.

Sometimes I am Benchmarking or testing systems such as instances at, a Swedish Cloud Service Provider ( Binero Group ).

Subteam compartment used to involv persons and systems at compartment AB, a Swedish webhosting company.

Mainly computers that run Boinc/Seti operate on Linux*, Unix**, and other platforms***.

Boinc/Seti also works great as a quick benchmarking tool to test through a system and see how it behaves under heavy CPU load.

* Linuxdistributions such as our own distro: compartment Linux(tm) (formerly known as: C-mentLinux) as well as Fedora, Xubuntu, Linux Mint and others.. Distros will probably continue to vary over time.

** Unix-like systems such as OpenBSD, FreeBSD and derivates of FreeBSD such as PC-BSD and also Mac OS X.

Earlier in the project we have also used other hardware such as MAC and SUN computers as well as Intel-machines (running solaris, OpenBSD. Mostly Intel CPU:s are/have been used even though we've have burned out some old Durons and Semprons in the past :)

Team compartment @ SETI is a member of Team Colliander.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. It's fun and easy to participate in something so important and fascinating.
2. Interesting, very important to learn more about our universe.
3. The use of the same platform with as little problems as possible for the end systems is important - the switch from the old system scared us and others away from the project for many years but now we're back again with the new boinc software.
