So when I got to the Boinc website to download Boinc, I saw the big yellow button for Science United. I didn't realize it was not Boinc where I could choose specific projects. However, I eventually saw the "download BOINC" link underneath the Science United button. I found this to be very confusing. How come you can't have two big yellow buttons, one for Science United and the other for downloading Boinc? I believe it would be easier for a new comer to understand. Thank you

You will I think find most here agree with you. Sadly, the person who decides this does not. While David Anderson posts news items to do with BOINC SU and a few other things fairly regularly, he doesn't read other threads or if he does, he doesn't respond to them.
