Today I have released Dotsch/UX 1.0. - Dotsch/UX is a Linux distribution for BOINC which easily installs and boot from a USB stick, hard disk and from diskless clients and also has some interfaces to setup the diskless server and the clients automatically.

For more informations have a look at http://www.dotsch.de/Dotsch_UX

This looks cool. I would d be interested to know if there is any performance increase when SuperSpeed USB 3.0 comes out at the latter end of the year.

With USB 3.0 the system would faster boot from the USB stick. But the crunching would not have any big benefits from USB3, because the most BOINC projects only writing a few data to the USB stick every several minutes.
