Hello,

I just signed in yesterday and found that the project does not seem that active. Is this expected ?

Thank you,

The work for this project is from climate research centers around the world.

Each of them is independent, and provides work here as and when they have a need for data, which isn't constantly.

There are about 8,000 computers currently available, and the work is usually in batches of 1-2 thousand at a time.
The last batch was 520, for Linux only.

So, just keep waiting. Work will show up sooner or later.

Bear in mind that some tasks might be only available for one particular OS. The most recent batch was Linux only. More common are Windows only.
