A lot has happened since I first wrote this page. The biggest changes are in the Open Source arena with Linux reaching critical mass. Although Linux has been around for about 10 years, it was mostly text based in the beginning. This worked great for power users and for server applications. For the general masses who had become used to graphical user interfaces on the Apple Macintoshes and Microsoft Windows, this was a step backwards. I took a good look at Linux in 1997, even buying a copy of Red Hat. I chose not to pursue the software as I didn't want to give up the graphical interface and all the programs available for Windows.
That was ten years ago and much has changed. Thanks to an army of thousands of Open Source developers, Linux has come of age. It's been a long road, but the path has been clear the whole way. Slowly chipping away at first the basic applications and protocols, the entire spectrum of Userspace is being filled with Linux applications. The most notable development is the graphical user interfaces available.
I'm working on a series of programs for basic calculations. I'll start with things that I'm most familiar with, electronics, then I'll branch out from there.windows installer window keeps popping up?
Here is another page that looks at internal combustion engines using computational flow dynamics. You can simulate all sorts of piping arrangements and combustion chambers. You can also add turbochargers and the like. Wave by Ricardo Inc.
