Any thoughts on amd gpu's folding (5000 and 6000 series) from within Linux? Bitcoin mining on gpu's may have (it's worth while) days numbered, and I was wondering about eventually repurposing them (19 gpu's) to f@h. I'm not gonna go out and get a bunch of windows licenses so Linux is a must. USB key sized implementations prefered since that's what they're running on now and I don't want to get a bunch of are drives either.....

Thoughts?

Even if there was, AMD drivers + Linux = early grave.

You can reuse one Windows key like 10 times... I have the same key installed on all of my computers. Formatted multiple times. But that was over the course of 2 to 3 years..
