Hi- Yes, I have used it for over a year. It works fine with Win 95/98 and even better with Win NT due to its superior multitasking (no experience with Win 2000). Before implementing it, I ran all of the NONMEM package examples and several of my own data sets. In all cases, they were comparable to results generated with a Sun SparcStation 10 using Sun FORTRAN. Execution times on a 450 mHz PII w/128 mB RAM with 500 - 600 data points were 10 - 20% slower, depending on how many concurrent tasks were running on each computer.
