Folding PS2

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ive read that you can get lynix to run on ya ps2 but then can you get it folding as well?? Has anybody tried this and how do you get it to work, interested thats all, also wondering how well it might fold, be good to just have sitting in a corner doing something than just collect dust............if we could all get our ps2's folding we could get up the ranks in no time surely, this might need some serious work but obviously worth a try I think........

Ps2's arent the fastest things out there but I guess they would help the team. We need some xbox 360's folding for us .

I would actually think if possible, the gamecube would be better. The GC has a PowerPC processor, while the Xbox* is a celeron. And we all know PowerPC is more like AMD's architecture.. But I dont think its possible on the PS2 due to the CPU isnt X86, or RISC.

*lol thank you Tylerand, wasnt thinking.

Umm, the xbox 360 is power pc. Anyway, folding would probably be pretty darn good on the cell processor , we could actually put a ps3 too good use.
