There are two dual-processor Dell Precision 420/RamBus PC's with 256 meg of RAM and Matrox G-400 DualHead Max graphics with Rainbow Runner video add-on cards. One has two monitors, and the other has dual Sharp Notevision 5 video projectors for a face-to-face immersive telecollabation environment. These machines triple-boot Windows/NT 4.0, RedHat Linux 6.1, and Windows/98, as well as using VmWare to run NT under Linux and vice-versa.
A dual-processor Citrix MetaFrame machine allows the Unix workstations access to PC software under Windows Terminal Services via ICA client programs.
Our Alpha_1 research software portably operates all of these workstations, using our own display list library to interface to OpenGL through Tcl/Tk.
An additional eight Unix and/or NT workstations are distributed in our faculty and staff offices. Beyond that, there are eight SGI's, 100 Suns, and 90 Windows/NT PC workstations available for our use in the Computer Science Department and College of Engineering labs, all supported by central disk servers.
