Muon1 is a Windows-based distributed computing project that was started in 2001. Initially simulating 2500 particles, with a handful of people, now thousands of computers run the client simulating tens of thousands of particles at a time. Simulations are run using 0.01 nanosecond increments, which define the project's workload measure - particle-timesteps, or pts. An internet connection is preferred, but not required to participate. The client requires no integration with windows, and can be run from a portable drive, and switched between computers as required.

The average size of a simulation run is 308 Million particle timesteps, and will take between 15 and 45 minutes for a typical modern computer, depending on hardware.
