Suggestion: Mac App Store and Folding@Home

Apple released the new App Store today. I think it would be a great idea to have Folding@Home available to download.

Yes, this has crossed our minds too. We've been investigating the pros and cons of using this as our primary Mac distribution channel.

No possible, because the Mac App Store will not allow apps that download other code. Fah downloads new and missing cores.

Apple always make me laugh a lot, but I think that's one of the best story I've heard :lol:

I think this would also be an insanely good idea, it changes FAH from fringe to mainstream :)
