OS: Windows Vista 64 Pro
CPU: Intel Q9550 (Core2 Quad, 2.83GHz)
GPU: nVidia GTX280, 1GB
Chipset: nVidia (i790 if I remeber right)
Blender: 2.48a (32 and 64)

I am using 32 bit blender and 64 bit blender. Both work fine, but I couldn't make the 64 bit blender recognize a pre installed python, and I cannot use external python libs with 64 bit blender. I guess the reason is that there is no 64 bit python distribution available yet and I didn't bother to recompile python on my own.

Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit
CPU: Intel Core Quad CPU Q6600 @2.4GHz
RAM: 4.0 GB (can't see how to find out what type of ram.)
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX
Driver version:
Driver Date: 17/09/2008
Blender versions "tested": 2.46, 2.49RC1
Inexperienced user, have not tested thoroughly. Noticeable effects:
If Aero Window manager is active, but not in "high contrast mode" the Windows magnifier will only display black for the blender window, the rest of the desktop being magnified correctly. In "high contrast mode" (See accessibility options, and for those testing you can toggle with with <alt-left_shift-print_screen> but after leaving high contrast mode the icons get moved about on your disktiop, the backgound image will not be displayed (flat colour instead) and some applications (Opera? Firefox?) will get confused about which mode they are in, i.e. this doesn't turn itself off entirely correctly in my experience), then the blender window is magnified correctly.

Operating System : Ubuntustudio 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)
Desktop : Gnome 2.26.1 - w/o composite
CPU : Intel Core Quad CPU Q6600 @2.4GHz
Graphic Card : Nvidia GeForce 6200 GS 512MB AGP
Driver : NVIDIA 180.44 Xorg Driver

Blender works fine, except some flickering in the user interface, especially on recently used parts (i.e. : Sculpting object : If I put my cursor on the "Draw" button to change my sculpt mode, when back on the model, the button and those around start flickering, I just have to put my cursor on it to make it stop.) since Blender version 2.44 (I didn't try with previous versions).

About performances : Blender gets slow when approaching 200.000 faces.

System 1:
Operating system: Windows XP, SP3 on a Dell Inspiron 9400
Graphics card: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
Driver/OpenGL version: ATI Catalyst 9.11( running with atioglxx.dll( - from Catalyst 9.10) in blender root directory.
Functionality: Overall appears to work fine. With Window Draw Method set to Triple Buffer any panels without mouse-focus will slowly fade to black on mouse movement. It appears that the dimming effect for an unfocused panel is accumulating on mouse movement, even when moving from panel to panel. A click or mouseover of a button in a panel will trigger a full refresh for the immediate panel and the brightness will be restored. Switching to Overlap draw method fixes this consistently.
Notes: It took me a while to get any revision running without crashing on boot up. GSoC Freestyle branch [r25014] from will run w/o atioglxx.dll( in the root dir and consequently be using the older atioglxx.dll( I will continue to test different revisions to see if I can get the main trunk to run without dropping a different .dll into the root directory. Other than that, OpenGL lights in r25014 are reluctant to update without switching between Solid and Textured viewport shading specifically.

System 2:
Operating system: Windows 7 Pro (6.1) on a ASUS F50SV-X1 (intel x86 core 2 duo)
Graphics card: nVidia GT 120M
Driver/OpenGL version: nvoglv32.dll( from drivers 186.31
Functionality: No issues found yet. Very Happy
