I can confirm the budgetary side of things.

A very heavily compute-bound project at work used to run as a distributed background task (only when the hosts were (a) displaying their screen savers and (b) connected to power) on most of the computers in the company, using resources that were essentially "free". When the IT department was reorganized, the new IT manager claimed that this was a possible security breach. We were forced to migrate to the "cloud", where we ran through the entire budget in very short order.

I don't know what happened to the project after that.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
