Is my assumption correct, that I get 2 identical outputs if I run a prp with the same -s <seed> 2 times?

Correct. Also if you use the latest source (atkin243) it should be identical between different OSs

Looks like you got some action:

Angry WHAT?!

WHY DID HE DO THAT?! I wanted a new Windows version, not the removal of the old! Don't worry though. I have the zip on my computer. Hopefully he'll allow me to reupload it somewhere until he makes a newer version, if ever.

You could run Linux in a VM. Assuming a relatively modern CPU, AFAIK Primo should run about as fast as it would if you were running Linux natively.

Probably because you annoyed him by repeatedly emailing him to tell him to do something he didn't want to do.

Modern cpu isn't that necessary. My Q6600 runs things at the same speed in a VM. It might depends on what program you use. I last tested with the ggnfs sievers. You do need a bit more memory.
Older than core 2 might be problematic. You quite possibly need the visualization extension a lot of the core 2s have(the later ones aren't what is necessary here. GPUs that might be a different question though.)

Perhaps "relatively modern" was a poor term for something that was introduced in 2005 or so, and widely adopted soon after. Anyway, more specifically, that's what I was referring to: the CPU hardware's support for virtualization. And also preferably a 64-bit Windows OS, since otherwise I'd expect the performance of a 32-bit OS/app (not sure how that affects Primo; may be insignificant or a big deal).

Thumbs down HOW on EARTH could 1 e-mail cause this after 5 MONTHS?!

Please do NOT warn or ban me over this, I'm just very super mad over what Marcel did. Here it goes:

THIS IS TICKING ME OFF!!!! That was MEAN of him to take Windows Primo off over ONE simple e-mail!! I only sent him ONE e-mail, which was sent at least 0.4198862272 years (5 months 3 d 8 h 38 m 38.633760485376 s) ago. That's 153 DAYS ago! WHY would he do that?! WHEN in this entire universe is he going to make another Windows version?! If he doesn't, he should either upload the source code or re-upload the version that was on there in the first place so that people with 32-bit computers can use Primo (no 32-bit Linux version)! He better do it before I reach the age of 64!!! That gives him 44 years (~23375.5008 days or May 4th, 2057), hopefully he'll still be alive, but if he doesn't release the source code (or another Windows version) by then, I'll be so furious that (if possible at the time) I'll probably leave this planet (and head off to who knows where) with my family and may NEVER COME BACK!! You would lose a good friend (I was the one that asked you about the factorization of M1061, the SNFS record at the time, therefore helping it to keep going)! When he took the Windows Primo off, it felt like he was giving me a rude gesture (you know what I mean), that's how mad I am!

If you want to know, I backed up this post in a text document on my computer so I'll still have it.

Perhaps your email to him had nothing to do with retiring the Windows version of Primo.

A suggestion: quit taking poison hoping someone else dies.

Hopefully he releases the source code within our lifetimes because I want to download it someday.
