Recent thoughts- Fluent on Linux vs Windows
Hello All,

I ran a search in the Fluent forum and found a number of older (2004-2006) threads comparing the performance of Fluent on Linux vs Windows OS

Has anyone tried comparing, say Ubuntu/Fedora Fluent run with the identical run on Windows 7? I am wondering, if everything else is equal, will Fluent be faster under either OS.

I can surely say that the latest version of Gambit under 32-bit XP was faster than the same version (but a 64-bit flavor) under Windows 7. Under windows 7, it takes time for Gambit menus to appear, buttons are "sticky" etc.

If anyone has experience please share

I agree with you as to Gambit.

As to Fluent it worked faster on Server XP than on XP 32-bit. But it is not my own experience
