I'm not a developer, but it's certainly reasonable to suspect that the OpenCL environment is not sufficiently robust for them to produce a reliable port to OpenCL yet. OpenCL currently supports relatively simple activities and FAH is not a simple activity.

... You could write something in OpenCL and it will run on everything and be much easier to code.. Or you could write it in CUDA and have it limited to nvidia GPUs but run 2x-10x faster...

I've tried 3 different version (9.04, 10.4, & 10.10), and different CUDA version (3.0 & 3.2), different wrapper versions (3.0, 3.1, 3.2), and two different Wine version (1.2 & 1.3). I finally got it to fold, but then it locks up Gnome, even with auto-mator. Unfortunately, I've had to go back to Windows 7, even though I REALLY want to use Ubuntu 10.10. GPU folding is the killer app for me. Please, Pande project! Let's get a native Linux GPU folding app released! It seems as if CUDA is stable enough on Linux to be able to do this now.
