Dear WRF users,

I recently received funding for a research project that includes the use 
of WRF to simulate climate in the upper Missouri River basin.  I have a 
Sun Ultra (with dual co-processors), but I understand that compiling WRF 
on a Sun with Solaris OS is challenging.  I may have the opportunity to 
purchase a second workstation for running WRF.  Any suggestions?  This 
machine would be mostly to run WRF to set up model runs and to become more 
familiar with the model.  We would not use it for extended runs.  Would a 
Dell workstation with Red Hat Linux work well?  Thanks for any feedback 
from the WRF community.
