I'm not sure either. IBM is a big company, but I know nothing about the Krembil Institute.

If nothing really changes, and is a move to benefit most people, then go right ahead.

Interesting to see of some projects are canned etc.

The Krembil Institute has been involved with WCG, subprojects being SCC and MCM.

I think this may be positive for the grid, opens up the possibilities for other subprojects, one being Parkinsons.

Due to the only 3 active projects, researchers on both ARP1 and MCM have posted abouted the speedup they have noticed, which has made them happy.

Cheers

WCG's announcement raises the question as to how BOINCStats (and other stat's services) will handle this change. Will the WCG project be retired and a new Krembil project started or will WCG's name just be changed to Krembil?

For what it's worth, I prefer a new project rather than just a name change.

I posted this question at BOINCStats (Index>The Projects >WCG finds a new home at Krembil Research Institute). If you have an opinion, you may want to post it here:

UPDATE: I asked this question to IBM and they are transferring the trademark WCG to Kremil and the name will not change.
