Apparently it is quite dead, but site gives some works occasionally. Few months ago I received some work. It had many errors. Initially it worked on Windows, but later it became linux only (worked fine through VM). This site is trying to keep itself alive for those occasion when they have some work to distribute, so participation of members is poor. Also official staff seems to rarely visit it. For like 10 years this project has been in beta status. It seems to have been more active earlier and during higher activity times it had more solid work units so beta status was removed. From my experience now it's not all that solid, errors are common, tweaking is often needed, workarounds are needed.

So if you are looking to contribute to it, you will have to have a lot of patience and deal with many issues. If you are looking for something easy to contribute to, then this project isn't really for you.

I have another question, why does website say that job is completed, but there's only like 6% of it is completed? Now that I mention it, there seems to be many more of those jobs, where they didn't reach 100% and website says that they are completed.

Not sure if you are still interested, but there's a lot for work for linux now. If you don't have any native linux machine, you can set up VM and install linux distro of your choice. Then install BOINC and crunch.

I am wondering what those two PVT Walsh P (1 and 4) jobs are researching. Does anyone have any idea?

This is kind of off-topic, but will there be any Windows WUs in near future?

I was wondering if Rosetta@Home also contributes to finding cure for coronavirus. They seem to be more open with their research, but seemingly no one uses it as much as Folding@Home. Is it less effective or just less popular?
