Default Fluent / Gambit on VISTA or XP ???
Ralf Schmidt
Posts: n/a

I want to buy a new powerful laptop to run fluent and gambit on it.

Now my problem: what is the best operating system for maximum performance?

Ok, many of you would argue, I should use Linux... But somehow, I really prefer Windows ...

Now, if windows, what is the best system for fluent / gambit? Win Vista or Win XP?

Is it a good idea, to use Win Vista 64 ?- its support 4GB ram

Or (I had that idea while writing this email) can I use Linux for simulation with fluent and Win (xp or vista) for email, internet, office parallel? What to do for that?

thanks for answering! Ralf

ok.. I made my decision:

I gonna install on the notebook a dual / or trial boot system:

Win XP / Win Vista / Suse Linux

And install Fluent / Gambit on all 3 op systems. Vista to try it (I heart a lot bad about it... but also good thinks...), XP because I know it and Linux because simulation will probably be faster.

I'll give you an update, how these systems perform... a kind of benchmark

Some hints, what I have to consider doing so???

i work on window XP 64 bit. u need to have .Net framework 2.0 in order to run Fluent. just download the add on from microsoft website.

Window XP 64bit works pretty well and it tolerant 32bit application. I now operating on mixing 64bit application and 32bit application. I not sure about the performance, but it support 8GB of memory , so its good for my large mesh count simulation.

remember to update to service pack 2.
