Intensive Acceptance Testing has been carried out on the following systems, which act as our baseline:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional (2002 version) with Service Pack 2 on a 32-bit Dell Precision M65. 1.83GHz Intel processor. 1Gbt RAM at 1.83GHz.
Microsoft Windows Vista Business with Service Pack 1 on a computer with 64-bit Intel Core 2 Quad at 2.40GHz. 4Gbt RAM
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional on a computer with 64-bit Intel Core 2 Quad at 2.40GHz. 4Gbt RAM
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 with the GNOME windowing environment. Dell laptop. 1.86GHz Intel processor. 1GBt RAM at 798MHz with 2GBt Swap memory.
Previous versions of HSpot (but NOT v4.2 and later, which required a later, incompatible Java version) have been intensively tested on:
MAC OS X v10.4.8 Tiger on a 32-bit MacBook Pro 1,1. Intel processor at 2.16GHz. 1GBt DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz.
Other, even older platforms and operating systems that have been tested are detailed below.
