I think this is a potentially important project, but you need to make it more user-friendly to attract more support. I think the two most important things you can do are:

(1) Provide checkpoints if possible (some projects can't). As it is now, if you reboot, you lose everything. A checkpoint of once an hour would help; more if possible.
(2) Upgrade the VirtualBox wrapper to run with VirtualBox 5.2. Most crunchers have upgraded by now, and if they try your project and fail, they probably won't stick around to read the fine print that VBox 5.1 is required.

Of course, a Linux version would help too, since a lot of the most dedicated crunchers use it. But Windows is more important at first.
