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: C-mentLinux as well as Fedora, Xubuntu, Linux Mint and others.. Distros will probably continue to vary over time.
** Unixes such as FreeBSD and derivates of FreeBSD such as PC-BSD.
*** And other platforms such as various versions of MS. Notable is that XP SP2 is extremely much faster and more reliable when emulated under Unix (seems like approx 4 times faster) than the "real thing" (!).
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.

|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.
