How About creating new Applications for linux machines? There is a great community of those who use linux 32bit or 64bit.
I dont get any tasks but have three linux machines running. There is potential; don't you need it?

Looking forward to new Linux-Applications

Why? There is not even enough work available to keep existing Win machines interested, let alone busy!

It seems to me that if time is going to be spent creating a new "application" it should be targeted at running computations on a Windows machine GPU (cuda23). Most modern machines have a very high performance GPU setting on the graphics card and for much of the time it is setting idle. SETI@Home pumps jobs targeted at the GPU quite successfully.

(Not that I have anything against Linux.)

This is a quote from a post by dr. Ben Segal of CERN:
Please note that the new LHC project I have referred to is not designed to run on GPUs but uses virtualization.
