Playstation 3 as cruncher discussion.
 
For reasons I choose not to mention, because they annoy people, I am really gungho about the possibility of the Cell processor as a cruncher. To start things out, I would ask the following question. Please fill in the blanks if the question is ignorant in any way.

I am concerned about whether or not there will be a good amount of crunching software for the PS3. In terms of the factoring programs, do you guys think it will be easy, hard, or impossible, to compile PS3 versions? Mostly, I am concerned about the possibility of running an ecm client that contacts a server.

Well, there will be a [url=http://folding.stanford.edu/FAQ-PS3.html]Folding@home client for the PS3[/url]. So chances are good that it is possible to port other DC projects, although the effort for an efficient port could be pretty high.
