Hi all,

We are in the process of procuring a server and need
to evaluate the feasibility of the Apple Mac OS X
server  (PowerPC G5 processor) as a platform for
running bioinformatics applications. 

I have had a look at the website 

I would like to know if there has been a specific
problem anyone has experienced with regards to
installing and executing general bioinformatics tools
like (BLAST,HMMER,BLAT, Bioperl,Emboss rasmol etc..)
and would also be happy if one could provide a
comparison between Linux and Mac server.
