Has anyone seen this new feature from the toolbar (seems like a whole lot a power if even a small percentage of people "donate" processor time):

"Google would like to request your help on Google Compute, a new feature for the Google Toolbar. By turning on this feature, you can allow your computer to work on complex scientific problems when it would otherwise be idle. The work it does is automatically sent via the Internet to researchers who combine it with information sent by thousands of other users."

Folding@Home apparently have more than 70.000 CPU at their resources now [folding.stanford.edu], and Google compute have played a large part there.
