As usual, us Linux and Mac users can do what we think best.

BOINC's page has nothing to do with the VirtualBox forum though. This forum is for the official versions of VirtualBox. Not modified builds for other purposes. So you can see my confusion. :D

edit: I just wasn't sure what the point of mentioning their links are broken is all. I'm all caught up now. :)

BOINC is NOT modifying Virtual Box. It is simply including it in its clients for Windows PCs, also because other CERN projects will make use of Virtual Box such as CMS-OpenData, this so far outside BOINC but using Virtual Box. See at boinc.berkeley.edu the slides of the Budapest 10th BOINC Workshop recently held, where two CERN people talk about the CERN use of Virtual Machines for scientific computing.

As I said, I'm all caught up now. :) Chalk it up to the fact I'm getting old and dementia is setting in. I didn't even notice the section you are posting in. :D

Well, I am 79 and people have called me a "vecchietto", that is a silly old man. But I have a degree in Theoretical Physics and follow what is done at CERN on scientific computing using Virtual Box. But also people at Oxford University which run the BOINC climateprediction.net project have expressed the idea of using Virtual Box instead of having to maintain a Windows release, a Linux release, a Mac release, for both 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

Well you don't strike me as a vecchietto at all. You can tell them that from me. :)

I haven't gone to the site yet, but I will.
