I started using Boinc with a single core CPU. Switching projects was the only way to participate in multiple projects. There was a drawback. Sometimes a task was almost finished to report it in time before the deadline and then projects were switched :-(
Now I have a multi core CPU and for me it makes switching projects unnecessary.
So my thing for the wish list is: don' t switch projects but select for each project how many cores (threads) it can use. If this can be made possible, I will participate in more than 1 project again.

There is also another thing that can be improved. The manager shows for each task how much time it will take to finish (estimated). I let Boinc use 30% of my CPU and those estimated times should be multiplied by 100/30 in my case.
