This sounds reasonable. There should be room for CPUs, otherwise we run the risk of coming off as a snooty "GPUs only, you CPUs need not apply" club.

When I first discovered GIMPS and then OBD, the prospect of getting my old Windows machines participating was a major motivator. And the effort I put into exploring ways to get them involved yielded ample fruit in terms of learning about computing. Even when I ultimately retire the older PCs from factoring work, I enjoy a sense of satisfaction about the experience.
