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. > Just what is an X Window system and Motif?

As I mention above, if you wanted to configure your Pentium 90 to run Unix, you could do so. > When one speaks of compilers, is an ANSI (ISO) C > compiler just another name for the compiler that > compiles for plain old ordinary C code? Yes, it's just another (more specific) name for a plain old ordinary C compiler. 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. Tamara
