I'm running first task with it. Boinc or LHCb app haven't vomited on it so far (~ 2 hours).

Yes, I read that. But I like testing for fun if 'bleeding edge' versions can run and survive. Miracle happened here. Task validated successfully.

I'm not going back to production version unless problems start to show up.

Production versions are just so PC. Nobody wants to talk bleeding edge. I will.

Now there's no work available for LHCb so it's a nice time for a report.
14 tasks run (8-core) so far... just to see if anything would break, but no problems caused by this 6.0 Beta 1 whatsoever.

A small update:
After LHCb work was ceased this host run a few SixTrack tasks until they were gone too.
So this host has been running ATLAS tasks now. I started with 2-cores for VM and have gradually went to 8-cores.
No problems with this '6.0 Beta 1', all has been working fine.

I see I haven't mentioned this is a Windows host.

Okay, I was already going to tell that I see strange behavior... tasks running only for a short time and then starting from the beginning. That was because previous Theory tasks had run something like 18 hours. I thought a task was looping now.

Then I found out there is already a couple of "Completed and validated" from this new set. They run about 25 minutes. 'Progress' bar went barely to 2 % until these tasks finished. I don't know if they produced scientifically any useful results, but at least anything didn't error out.

Beta 3 - Good product again, 5/5 stars
