Folding at Home has 600k* registered PS3's. Why not d.net??

* - Ok, there's only around 39k "active" PS3s at any given time (ie. units reporting within the past two days). Compare to RC-72's overall 3k "active" participants at any given time.

Sony's support probably has something to do with it.

24/7 support is only available for 3.428571 hours per day.
