well its based off parallel computing. so if i could get the 5 PC's at home to all work on the same unit it should go about 5x faster then if only one PC ran it. i cant just dedicate one server to folding but i can have all my PC's fold, and if i could have them all fold the same one, I could have the servers folding during low-load/idle times, making folding go much faster.

Seems to make sense to me to allow the average user to take advantage of parallel computing, when there are multiple machines in use.

Ahh, I see and it makes sense too. If I ever see something like that, I'll let you know.
