Can Prime95 be used for free in a business/enterprise?

For what i see in the EULA it seems so... but i would like to be sure.

Thank you!
Primes95 is a program that searches for large number of prime number. The program is free and you can use to business/enterprise.

Considering the many discussions on the forum, it should be strongly restated that there is no obstacle on the GIMPS side to running Prime95 on computers used for business.

HOWEVER, the businesses which OWN those computers, and PAY for the power they use, can take VERY STRONG EXCEPTION to their machines being used for this purpose.


Please don't muddy the water on this issue. Newcomers might be misled and get into real trouble.

The usual downside of the freedom of speech is that everyone is allowed to speak. Even those who know nothing. Sadly, because of the Dunning-Kruger effect, those will speak louder and more confidently that others.

Harrywill, by your logic, you can also bring (very clean and neat, you know, temporarily down-on-their-luck) homeless people to sleep in the offices of the company where you work for the night (absolutely for free!). As long as they will not touch anything and clean up after they leave in the morning. It is charity at its best! The company must be insane and heartless for firing you after they learn about it. Right?
