Hi there. I am new to GEANT4. Any answers or recommendations are highly appreciated. Here are my questions:

1.Is Linux or Unix better than Windows XP as the operation system for GEANT4.9? If they are not much better than XP, I would rather stick on XP since I am a rookie to Unix/Linux.

2.Is the GEANT4 very demanding on the system? Does a single CPU workstation with higher frequency or a Quad-Core workstation with lower frequency for each CPU have better performance on running GEANT4 ? What size of Ram and Hard disk is better for the performance of GEANT4?

3.Can you recommend me a specific brandname based on your experience. e.g., HP xw8600 Workstation,etc.

Thanks for taking time read my thread.Any recommendations are appreciated.

Colin
