I would be very intrested in hearing how your first steps with Genesis
on MacOS X were. Does it run without requiring an X-server?

I just decided, that I woul prfer going with Neuron, because it runs on
more platforms and I like the "section"-concept for modelling neurons,
compared to directly modelling single compartments in Genesis (or did I
miss an important development here?). Does Genesis/MacOS X come with a
running version of GMODL?

thanks for any answers, Chris
