I like BOINC.
The client has multiple languages.And it is very easy to switch one project to another.
Folding@home is good too,but only English. Undecided

Gridcoin has custom Boinc projects available and soon paid computing projects like 3D rendering/Stock option analysis etc.. So there is quite a bit of difference between Gridcoin and Curecoin and they way they function. I mine both coins because I think both of them serve an important purpose!

The new POB(Proof of Boinc) that is being finished up right now will actually make the Boinc calculations part of the blockchain.

Hate to rain on u guys parade but... If I can't download the wallet from the manufacturers website now and have it sync, what's the point?  Assume I'm not mining, Boincing or know this forum exists, that I bought or someone gave me some Gridcoin, where am I to store it?  Not going to .conf this or delete that app data and then spin my head and enter this line in the whatever.  Who's going to use this coin other than miners, geeks, tweebs, losers, etc.  Back to the point, no wallet no coin no future except for miners.
I apologize for the long delays-- Ive been active on the supernode project and the boinc serverside finance design, and of course we are trying to roll out cpu miners.  Im going to try to prioritize more time over here.

Clapper,  the latest prod version should still sync; Ive reinstalled on a couple of my nodes without an issue.
Will you please post a specific problem that occurs after installing the MSI from gridcoin.us?  I will monitor this thread and help you get started.
The config is very simple once you find the mining console | GPU Configuration tab (for scrypt mining).

Is the only difference between curecoin and gridcoin that one is FAH (stanford) and the other is BOINC (berkeley)?
Right now they are similiar however curecoin has 2 methods of mining at once sha256 and the folding miners. With curecoin those giving the network security do not benefit folding projects. They are also less likely to continue supporting the network once mining becomes less profitable. You can't feel as good just giving network security as say finding a cure for cancer. Those miners will drop off as soon as there's no money to be made causing a less secure network and higher likelihood of a fork. I feel that gridcoin has an advantage because of this. Also the new wallet looks amazing. Next gen stuff. More advanced than nearly any other coin.

What gridcoin really needs is an effective marketing program. Currently curecoin is winning in that department. I truly hope both of them become the most successful coins. It perplexes me how so many seem so interested in all the shitcoins than the ones that truly make a difference.

Thanks for your compliments.  I couldn't have said it better.

Rest assured we have a deep grassroots effort to fix the marketing problem in a couple of months.  Ive been receiving 10 emails a day with ideas and about 1 a day from volunteers who actually want to help promote Gridcoin.  The issue is, we really want the whole coin to work cross platform properly (ie the cpu mining release is much more than that, its not only a redesign but its functionality is totally cross platform).  We want all these features to work on every platform first, then we can go full bore with marketing.

From what I understand the GRC wallet now works on both Linux and Mac natively. So that should make GRC much more accessible.

There was a lot of technical challenges with Gridcoin and now things are finally starting to fall into place.

I am assuming that is the new client with CPU mining and linux and mac compatibility.

Anon-
Got your PM about page 1, and Tradermans note from a month ago about page 1, and AndrewPs long notes about Page 1.  Don't worry, I still have all these updates on my list.
I will either give the keys to Andrew P or update page 1 ASAP.

Gridcoin New Version Ready
Mandatory Upgrade
Hard Fork

2.1.3.0/150/MSI 12.7:

Upgrade from the RPC:  Yes

Alternate download location:

http://www.gridcoin.us/download/gridcoin.msi


Release Notes:
http://www.gridcoin.us/docs/GridcoinMajorReleaseNotes.pdf

If you have trouble syncing:
- addnode supernode.gridcoin.us

Config file changes:
- cpumining=true
- email=yourboincemailaddress
 
Ensure that you add BAM or your valid individual projects (with team gridcoin) to all running instances of boinc across nodes and ensure the e-mail for each project is correct in the boinc project, and matches gridcoins email address setting.

- Gridcoin will not GPU mine until it has at least one valid project to mine.  Listitem cpids to verify.


** A special huge thanks goes out to all of the testers that helped bring this version to life. **

** Note:  Exchanges have been notified and are in the process of upgrading.

** The linux version and Mac version are ready, and being compiled by Leder.  More notes will follow with the download links!


****** NOTE:   Disregard the Mining Console's boinc Utilization and warning.  It is being replaced by the Overview Page: Boinc Magnitude.  We will remove those indicators asap.  ******

Finally! I'm just wondering, when will the official pool be available?
I really want to mine Gridcoin but it seems a little confusing, and I just wish it used an ASIC resistant algorithm such as Scrypt-N or X11
