I am currently involving a project which needs huge amount of simulations in ISE using Modelsim as a simulator . However the problem is the simulations are indeed time consuming . I do appreciate it if anyone suggest me about simulation time on Linux vs. windows!
I would be so grateful if anyone tell me what are the advantages and disadvantages of using ISE on linux vs. windows.

This is not a direct answer, but...
1. Modelsim is a Mentor Graphics product. Have you posed this question to the good folks at Mentor Graphics?
2. Have you searched the web (or these forums) for answers to this question?
3. I humbly suggest that for any given operating system you choose, critical factors would include processor speed (and number of cores, cache size, etc,), memory speed, and amount of installed DRAM. These factors might well be more important than operating system.

Thank you so much for your reply.
I believe that regardless of Hardware specification, the memory management can be so critical. I have not tried it in practice but based on the courses that I have passed in university (operating system), one of the advantage of Linux Vs. window is the strong memory management which normally have a great impact on the speed of the system that's why many advance and complicated simulators are based on Linux. However these kinds of things depend on many factors that I was asked about any real experience of anyone !!!? not just theory.
