Well there is console windows, smp windows, console linux, smp linux (64bit OS only ) uhm, and OSX console and SMP, etc.

What order do they all fall in terms of folding power?

I used to run SMP in XP... now I am really having fun in my dual boot of linux.
I can't run linux SMP as I don't have a 64bit version, but I did manage to get two consoles running as two seperate machine IDs.

I run SMP in vista and it works considerably better with my Core 2 than it did without the other core

The list is native Linux SMP > Linux SMP through VMWare > Windows SMP > consoles/graphical clients (all more or less equivalent and much slower than SMP). The GPU and PS3 clients fit in between SMP and the rest in terms of point production, but both of those clients do extremely well in terms of crunching the limited data sets that they can run.

So you are saying two consoles is much slower than windows SMP?

Well, the way I see it, at least two WUs are getting worked on. lol

HEY!!!! My folding postbit is gone?! Is that because I have been dormant for ~ a week? That's not cool at all!

Whatever you do, always run some form of SMP client. There is a massive point bonus for SMP work units right now. They are worth between 5-10x more and take around the same ammount of time to finish.

I can't. I'm on 32bit Ubuntu
Do you know what the deal is with my postbit? Is it gone because I haven't had an active processor in 7 days? Will it just come back?
I couldn't care less about points, as long as my computer is doing something to help. I hate how folding has kind of become a game of sorts...

When all else fails, read the FAQs - http://www.overclock.net/faqs/85206-...formation.html (or just look in my sig)

And yes, two consoles are much slower than a single SMP (on the order of 5x with most WUs, though there are a few random console WUs that chug along pretty quickly, though they are unfortunately few and far between).

They make a 64bit Ubuntu!
Now I have to redo my whole setup
At least I'll get SMP back...

I can run 64bit Ubuntu right?
I have a D820 and it's 64bit.
I know I couldn't run it in VMWARE in XP, but then I realized it's because my CPU doesn't support virtualization. But what's confusing is it ran 32bit ubuntu vmware fine. What's that all about?

So should I run the windows SMP even if I have a single core cpu that is rather slow? I could swear I remember reading a FAQ that said only use that for multi-core systems
