Question Overview of DC Projects?

Hi, there. I'm relatively new with respect to running NFSNET's client, and I'm having a hard time getting my mind wrapped around the many different math-related DC projects. Could someone help me get a bigger picture? It seems like there are several projects sieving using the same program (LLR), and more still that are using different programs. Is there more than one DC project that is effectively working on finding the same thing? Is there a lot of overlap between the projects?

I realize that competition can be very useful, but how much more efficiency could be achieved by sharing information with everyone? Or, is there anything to be gained by sharing information?

I realize these questions are somewhat vague, but I appreciate any response that will help me understand the similarities, differences, and relationships of the various math DC projects.

Thanks in advance!!
