I am running FME on Xubuntu. It works very fine save for some minor glitches with the inspector. I am planning on setting up a couple of rather heavy vector calculations (areaonarea,buffering and dissolves) as well as raster calculations. For the latter I will probably be using Orfeo Tool Box from FME.
I asked IT for new hardware (I am running some pretty ancient hardware on my linux desktop) and they told me to specify a new computer.
I am therefore wondering:
- Can FME 2015 on Linux can make use of more than 16 Gb of memory?
- Safe software suggests Intel core i7. Which processor speed would be a good option?
- If SSD disks are necessary?
- If the software can also make use of graphics cards?
