Folding@Home Graphical representation of work?


I've just downloaded (well, yesterday) the Linux CLI client for the Folding@Home project. There is mention of a possible 'screen saver' for the Linux client here. Now, I am not too hot on Macs, but I was under the impression that MacOSX is running an X server of sorts... and yet here we can all see an OSX GUI client. I've had a peek at SF and FM and I can't find anything useful. I found something called Loofah, but that's just a GUI client and doesn't display anything nicely... what I'm looking for is something like the OSX client, if one exists.

Any ideas?

FWIW, Stanford seems a bit unclear as to this linux thingie, FAH3Console-Linux.EXE

An EXE? Sheesh...

Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not really what I was looking for. As far as I can tell, that program displays the progress made by teams... I was hoping for something a little more local... like either the xseti client or the Mac/Windows graphical client... something that shows what your own computer is doing. Thanks anyway.

Oh, and you're right. It's very strange that they should consider using the .exe. extension! Perhaps they think it's used everywhere to simply represent executable... who knows?
