[email protected] has been around for a long time and is a proven, stable program that benefits the medical field in very large manner. I believe that it has the most users of any distributed computing project. The results of [email protected] have already been successful in the aid of treatments for cancer, Alzheimers, and many other diseases. While I do not doubt that our resources could help another distributed computing project such as [email protected], we have chosen to put our fire-power behind [email protected] It has been that way since the start of the forum, and will continue to do so.
