Farmer Joe is in fact very useful in that it requires very little
setting up. I especially like the fact that I can take any computer and
add it to the farm without installing anything (runs blender straight
from the shared folder over the network). Also it's simple to upgrade to
a newer blender version. But it's very much NOT a failsafe solution,
which is a pain.

easier still to set up (as was already mentioned). A tad better
integration - I don't think the average user likes editing .conf files
