Learning to do colourfull fluid dynamics by pressing various buttons in a GUI is easy.

Learning the underlying physical and numerical theory is a tad harder.

The second is required in order to produce meaningfull results.

Hi Sam,

The vendors for both codes would be very happy to arrange a trial of their code. Try them for yourself and find out. The important thing is how well the code simulates what you want to do. Use some representative test cases to make the decision yourself.
