The Cosm Project




Quote:
Publicly re-launched in March 1999, Cosm Phase 1 is a set of open protocols and applications designed to allow computers all over the world to work together on projects. The project may be a mathematical challenge, or rendering an animation, or writing. These have recently been termed distributed computing, or GRID applications. Cosm also involves building the libraries, APIs, and standards that are required to make those types of applications easy to develop for every kind of system.

An introduction, brief history and some Questions & Answers about Cosm should clear up any other details. We also have lists of Cosm news and press.
Jump in progress

Phase 2 is coming, and almost here. CosmFS, the full security system, more utility layer, and a far more advanced client are all on the way. Phase 2 has little similarity to Phase 1 from the user's perspective, so you'll just have to wait for all the surprises.

You won't be seeing any action in the public CVS because it's all so interconnected, that it will not compile and work until the "jump" is done. I'll keep the jump-o-meter updated.
