AFAIK there is no real difference between the Boinc client you D/L from WCG and the regular version. WCG does test the different version for compatability with its software and stability which is one reason their approved version can be a little outdated ie. they offer 6.10.58 while the newest so called stable version available from the Boinc website is 7.0.28.

WCG uses alot of disk space because they insist on downloading the files for all of their different sub-projects, whether you run them or not...
That was the assumption I made originally when I DL'd from WCG, but for the life of me I can't find the ability to set Rossetta or Seti as a project. Unless I'm missing something it looks like I'm restricted to a very limited set of projects.
