Power PC OSX support to be deprecated

By , the in Folding@Home Project - No comment
There have recently been WU shortages for those running OSX on Power PC processors, due to the new cores not supporting the PPC architecture. Vijay Pande has stated that although there will still be new PPC WUs in the future, PPC OSX support for Folding@home is now in the process of being deprecated.

The overall computational power provided by the currently folding PPC processors has proven to be too small, and the effort required to support it large enough, that the Pande Group has decided that it will be more worthwhile in the long-term to reallocate the manpower currently going into PPC code maintenance, and instead consolidate it in order to better improve support for the other currently supported operating systems.
