    2525'''Secure''': the BOINC client and applications run under unprivileged accounts.
    26 The client runs as a service
    27 (this is necessary because Windows lacks a "setuid" feature;
    28 running a program as a different user requires storing the password of that user,
    29 which we don't want to do).
     26The client runs as a service, and runs even when no user is logged in.

    31 '''Graphics compatible''': the client and applications run under the account the logged-in user.
     28'''Graphics compatible''': the client runs only when a user is logged in.
     29It and applications run under the account of the logged-in user.
    3230This allows users to see graphics from older as well as newer science applications,
    3331or projects with long running tasks which won't complete for a while.
    34 The client does not run as service (otherwise graphics wouldn't work).
     32The client does not run as service.
    3533With this option, only the installing user and members of the Administrators group
    3634can control BOINC (i.e. attach/detach projects).
