The reason why we don´t support use distributed computing, yet. We need to find a way. It´s to expensive to run an wourld-wide computing grid!Quote from ATLAS-director on "Ideen-Expo" 2012 in Hannover
The CERN uses one of the biggest computing grid on the world; I´ll set an EDMS-Link to it. [if it´s open]
Open Science is an dream. Some projects uses open databases, like this. http://chemware.ucd.ie/FiNDaH/Malaria.php
I think it´s good to tell the user what you are making, see NumberFields@Home or climateprediction. [or just CERN]

VM is good and easy. You don't need to build your binary for each OS, that's a good point.
(e.g. wu progress bar)
It's not a bug :(. I don't know how to do that because of libboost... (I'll check again today)

Well, Virtualbox doesn't work on my machines (at least not with BOINC), so I can't say much about it. That's why I participate in Sixtrack but not in ATLAS or vLHC.

Open science is not a dream, it's the only way to do science. If you don't let others know your work, we will be always reinventing the wheel.
True. Sharing is what is the most powerful. But some stupid
Look at the evolution of the GNU/Linux Kernel, that's amazing how it's fast.
