Hello Everyone,

I am really new to this whole program and for the most part I have figured out most of it. Although I am a little confused as to what the "Credits" are. Can anyone explain what these are in the simplest of terms?

Thanks!

Different projects do different processing. In Rosetta, a Task runs for a fixed period of time. In many other projects, there is a certain amount of data to process and the more powerful the processor, the sooner it is completed (with Roesetta, the more work it is able to do in the fixed period of time).
Credits are there to to acknowledge the work that a system does for a project.
