I THINK i undertstand it now..

Somthin to do with diseases, and it takes THOUSANDS of computers working aroudn the clock to solve one small problem.. And your computer automatically downloads data, decodes it for DAYS, then uploads it and downloads new work..

No one makes money off what you do, but scientists benefiit from it and it may help cure diseases....
It uses 100% processor usage unless you use your comp for somthing else, then that other application takes over the processor.. So it dosn'et slow you down at all.

I have no idea how it works, or why it works, thats just what i'v understood so far from reading up on it.
