It's donating time that your computer would otherwise be idle to let it compute a tiny bit of work that fits into a much larger puzzle. Since I have an old clunker at work that is on all the time whether I am using it or not, I let it run the folding program day in day out.

Folding is a way of creating the worlds largest computer.

People from throughout the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world.

It's like a tinker toy...each computer links up to create an ever bigger computer which allows a company to more quickly solve problems by using this "world-wide" computer.
