we r planing to purchase PHOENICS Software, We required help for which OS suport will use Windows or Linux? Why ? plaz guide me

Re: phoenics
PHOENICS is supported for both Windows (from 95 up to XP) and LINUX. For Windows, we use the Compaq Visual FORTRAN compiler and for LINUX, we use the Red Hat LINUX compiler.

There are sequential- and parallel-processing versions for each. There is little performance difference between them (LINUX is slightly faster) and the licence fees are the same too. Windows is the most commonly installed version for PHOENICS.

I hope this helps.

Re: phoenics
From the graphical point of view, the Windows version is superior. PHOENICS is developed using Windows-based systems, and hence any other platform or operating system follows on from the Windows release. The post-processing facilities in PHOENICS have been improved for PHOENICS-3.5, but none of these improvements has yet been ported to other systems. So, in answer to your primary question, Windows is indeed the better solution.
