Interesting article about Boinc
The article based on the experience of running BOINC projects. We interviewed developers of projects on the platform BOINC in order to adopt their experience with the platform: issues with which they are confronted, how they have solved them, what changes have they done in BOINC and their opinion about BOINC platform, what should be improved in BOINC platform to make it better

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I just read the article and I am a bit shocked. It's the worst scientific article I've read so far. It looks like the article never went through peer review or spell checking. While I agree with some of the issues brought up by project administrators I also spotted some blatant inaccuracies about the capabilities of BOINC and even names of project administrators. I don't agree with the specific conclusions in this document especially the advertisement of the GridUNAM software (which I couldn't find any documentation for). Please read this document with a grain of salt.

Please read this document with a grain of salt.


I'm agree with you. I said "it's interesting" because i think it's the first time someone want to know the project's administrator opinions.
About conclusions i think they are too much "hard" on boinc's infrastucture....
