SETI@home user base to be pooled using Open Source software

Dave B writes: "The SETI team at Berkley have ambitious and altruistic aims for the next generation of the S@H software.

They are developing the "Berkley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing" -- BOINC, an open source project.

This will mean that users of the S@H/BOINC client can also work on other distributed computing projects and that other projects can use the S@H/BOINC installed base -- at the users discretion."
