Does anyone : out there have comparisons of Mma under the different versions of Windows : (Win 3.1, WfW 3.1, Win 95) ? I have used Mma v2.2.1 enhanced under Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. : With regard to Windows 95 - I've heard from someone at WRI that Mma may : actually run more slowly under Win 95 since Win 95 requires so much memory. Mma v2.2.1 enhanced runs noticeably *faster* in Win 95 than Win 3.1. A calculation which took over 4 hours on a 486DX/33 with DOS 6.2/Win 3.1 took slightly over 3 hours on the same 486DX/33 under Win 95. An additional benefit of Win 95 was that I could crank Mma kernel memory to the max - 12 MB (Win 95 implements a swap file that changes size as applications need more RAM). I have 8MB RAM with a ram doubler (~16MB).
