    Hi all,

    Couldn\'t find if there was a thread on this one so far but I was wondering since I stumble on it today.

    Here are 4 WUs my computer worked on :
    12544
    12573
    12624
    12602

    All Windows OS computers have equivalent claimed credits.
    But on these WUs worked Linux systems and they have far less credit, around 1/4 - 1/5 of Windows ones.

    Is it possible that the Linux SZTAKI client is faster than the Windows one ? Some optimization of the OS that permits a faster calculation ? Or the two crunching versions are different ?

    Or eventually, my question is stupid and then I will go back in my dark box to come back later with a stupidiest one ;o)))) ?

    Happy crunching you all,
    Hoochee-Boochee
    Ferenc

      Look here what Nightbird answered to my question.

        Thanks Robert.

        Wonder if new 2.02 version is optimized, but my BOINC didn\'t downloaded it yet.
        As I was on over-committed with SZTAKI, the poor guy is onhold for now, other projects catching up missed time ;o).

        Will wait and see.

        Bye,
        Ferenc.
