Science United attaches your computer to projects based on your science preferences. For example, if you select cancer research, your computer will compute for BOINC projects doing cancer research. If a new cancer project starts up, it will compute for that one too.
Science United uses a single anonymous account on each project, and attaches your computer to this account. Your Science United account information is not shared with projects.
Science United keeps track of how much work your computers have done, but it has no leader boards. If you use Science United, you won't be able to see your BOINC credit totals on project web sites, or on sites like BOINCStats.
