Wanted: Your Free CFD Solver Reviews

There are many free CFD solver packages and related libraries out there that I have never used (much less reviewed on this site). For instance, I know of OpenFlower and FreeCFD. There's CLAWPACK and FreeFem and many more.

I could never find the time to properly review of all of them, but maybe you have used one of them. If so, tell us something about it! Were you able to get the results you needed? Maybe there's a setting you found that really helped?

If you have a picture of some results you could share, that would be great, too.

Have experience with a free CFD solver?

Have you used free CFD solvers? Are you a developer? Have you found a rare jewel? Been burned by a code that didn't deliver? Share your experience, tip, or review here!
