Title: What kind of computer do you use?
Post by Tony on 05/10/14 at 20:37:36

When I first wrote Gravity Simulator, I used nothing but a Windows PC, running on Windows 3.1.  So naturally I wrote Gravity Simulator for a PC.  Apple users were never able to use the program.

Like most people back in the day, I upgraded to a Windows XP machine.  And like many, I stuck with XP, despite all the upgrades.  A few years ago I purchased an HP-mini that uses Windows 7.  But I haven't upgraded my home computer in about a decade.  I'm running XP as I type this.

Nowadays,  I also use an Android smartphone.  Most of my friends have iPhones.  At work they make me use an iPad and a Mac.  So I'm getting very accustomed to different platforms.

How about you?  How many platforms do you use, and which do you use most?

Desktop PC running Windows 7 - 2600K i7 CPU and 16GB DDR3 RAM.

I hope this means you're thinking of finally updating the program. There's got to be a way you can get it to run on multiple cores!
