Category 1: Reliability

In terms of reliability, the Muon client is most recommendable. Once started it runs smoothly in the background. However, poor handling, the long training time and a missing GUI has been criticized, so there could not be achieved full marks.

Muon scores 4 points in this category.

Category 2: Communication policy

On the Website you can find almost everything your heart desires: Forum, Jabber, Twitter and so on. However, everything is crammed onto the page, which makes it rather confusing for newcomers --> A certain amount of search effort is needed.

Muon scores 4 points in this category.

Category 3: Instructions

Because of it's missing GUI the client is a novelty for most (Windows) user. Thats the reason, why the existing guidance is not sufficient. Moreover, the instructions are only available in English.

Muon scores 4 points in this category

Category 4: Benefit for the general public

The project is necessary to perform experiments with the smallest known particles. Although there is not an obvious benefit to the community visible, it is very basic research on which other projects can build upon.

Muon scores 5 points in this category

Overall Rating

We consider Muon to be a recommendable DC-project. Only the user-friendliness of the client and it's guidance is worth improving it.

Muon therefore scores 4 points in overall rating.
