Linux client is available to World Community Grid

World Community Grid of which I am a member of (Accumulated Points: 132,859 Current Ranking: 7,406) has finally released a Linux Client, via BOINC. A forum news release is here. and an excerpt is below.
The Linux client is available to World Community Grid members via the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) platform. After much research, we found BOINC to be to best and most economically feasible solution for World Community Grid. For more information about BOINC, please see the Linux section of Help on our website.
To participate in the Linux program, go to the Join Now. From there, you will be directed to select either the Windows client or the Linux client. Once you select the Linux client, simply follow the instructions on your screen.

If you have any questions about Linux, there are four ways to get answers:
1. Review the Linux section of Help.
2. Go to the BOINC/Linux forum and review the Linux questions that others have posted.
3. Go to the BOINC/Linux forum and enter you own question and wait for a response.
4. Send an email to the support desk via the contact us feature.
