Sorry, no. Geomview only runs under Unix. You don't need an SGI
workstation, though: there are many free versions of Unix that run on
PCs, like Linux or FreeBSD. Note that this would take a fair amount of 
work on your part. You could minimize this work by paying a small
amount of money to a third party vendor like Red Hat (www.redhat.com)
in order to get some help with this process.

No. XWindows and Motif are Unix things that don't run under Microsoft
Windows. As I mention above, if you wanted to configure your Pentium
90 to run Unix, you could do so.

Yes, it's just another (more specific) name for a plain old ordinary C

Sorry to disappoint you. Geomview is no longer under active
development since the Geometry Center has been closed down, so it's
unlikely that a Windows version will ever be produced.
