One reason was not being allowed to run certain programs on the SD card. What if we root the device?

It's sad to not see BOINC running as well as it could anymore on Android (like some ported versions, such as Native BOINC, that used to be maintained that would move data to SD card) since it's the most popular OS now... much potential computing power lost.
