the folding at home does specifics, while teh wcg is doing EVERYTHING. folding at home does protiens that are known to fold, WCG find the protiens to be folded. same work, different take on it...there's a tonne of info that needs to be processed, and all teh findings are shared, so no matter which project, it all benfits the same in the end.

in regards to running it as a service, the boinc client offers this functionality upon installation, and hence my curiousness towards that client.
