I'm definitely preferring the BOINC client. Thanks to all those who answered questions on it. Now I have purged UD further from my system and I feel better than ever  MrGreen

After running both agents for a month, I figure BOINC isn't for me.  It's best suited for those running multiple projects and that have high speed broadband.   I run only WCG on dialup so it makes no sense to have to wait through downloads that take 3 times longer for BOINC than the UD agent, just to get the extra points that BOINC pays per unit.  Also, it takes as much as a week before BOINC units are validated and credited.

Only slightly cranky

I have found the boinc client to be better for my purposes for a number of reasons.  There's a Linux version   Heart, it has built-in work unit queing  Thumbs Up, more expansive built-in stats  Roll Eyes and I found I got better work throughput  Kiss though that's going from win2k+UD to Linux+boinc.
Points are irrellevent.  Resistance is futile (if less than 1 ohm)

Work throughput is the only thing you mentioned that matters to me and, for cancer jobs anyway, the two agents are fairly similar on my machines.  FAAH on BOINC actually ran slower for me than on UD.
BOINC takes 15 to 16 minutes to d/l a workunit, where ud takes about 5 or less.  Makes a big difference when running multiple machines (5 currently).

I didn't run boinc on dialup so I can't really comment there.  It does seem odd that it should take so long though.
To be honest I havn't checked the times on the latest projects.  I did my comparisons on HPF1, where boinc came out a hands down winner.

Got to run a few HPF2 units on BOINC before they shut it down and that too ran as much as 50% slower than on UD.  That's why I couldn't figure out why everyone was saying BOINC was faster as it didn't prove to work out that way for me.

I also prefer BOINC because it verifies the status of the work unit you send in and whether it got completed correctly or not.
