In this talk, I will review a new application in the volunteer computing project LHC@home, called Test4Theory, which is currently being alpha tested at CERN. This application uses virtual machine technology and a range of other software tools to handle large, complex software environments that are rapidly evolving, so that they can be distributed using BOINC.
