   I'm surprised that running leap is not recommended. Almost all of our
users tend to work on Windows, and they log into our cluster, use leap to
build inpcrd and prmtop files, and then launch their jobs. I hardly see
how it would be easier to install amber/leap on all the Windows machines
and then copy files over. Maybe I'm missing something?
