 Folding@home reduced PPC work units   

Folding@home is deprecating the Mac PPC architecture for future work unit types. Existing work types will continue to have work units, but newer cores (required for newer work unit types) will not be developed.

We have been going through various shortages for Power PC OSX WUs, due to the new cores not supporting PPC machines. While we expect that we may have new PPC WUs in the future, we want to give a heads up that we are depreciating PPC OSX support in Folding@home. We would love to support as many OS's as possible, but the overall compute power from the PPC group is small enough, and the efforts to support it large enough, that we have decided that it is better for us to put our resources into improving support for the other OS's we are supporting.
