Because Milkyway does not have any MacOS apps anymore since Separation finished, only Windows and Linux and only 64-bit for both.

First SETI@Home retires, and now MilkyWay for Macs. :-(

I already do Asteroids@Home and Einstein@Home — does anyone have any other favorite astronomy-related projects they contribute to if MilkyWay for Macs is now gone?

Go here: https://stats6.free-dc.org/apps and put darwin in the search box at the top right of the page and press enter, it will bring up all the Boinc Projects and their applications that can use macs.

I feel your pain. I didn't realize it was gone until today when it struck me I hadn't seen any work for a while.

I hadn’t been paying attention for a while—seems my iMac hasn’t done any work since June. Is there any point to remaining attached to this project, or is it the end of the road?

It's possible but not likely in the near future, there ARE people trying a various projects to offer their assistance in getting Mac OS apps up nd running but that is not as easy as it sounds for projects with very little continuity in their Boinc support, like MilkyWay.

Well, there's no point to remove it, maybe reset it to remove the separation app and all those sticky files and than set it to NNT to avoid unnecessary scheduler requests. That way you can always easily come back in case applications for your computer become available. My computer is still attached to SETI@home for nostalgic reasons, even with the optimized apps still ready to use. ;-)
