I was obviously exagerating, and, yes, many of the molecular modellers here at
Washington State do own Unix workstations (mainly old SGI's) but they are, by
far, the minority and they are the elite workgroups who are REALLY into that
type of stuff.  We try to provide molecular modelling CAPABILITY to ANYBODY
that wants or needs it through Dr. Still's, Columbia University, MacroModel/VMS
Program and Tektronix emulation.  Granted it is not the BEST solution and will
leave people dissatisified after they have have become more adept, however,
this way we can provide the service to the ENTIRE university!  Likewise, we
provide sequence analysis capability to everybody through GCG, PIR/NBRF,
PHYLIP, GMendel, etc. loaded on the same VAX/VMS cluster.

	Still trying to serve the most with the least, Steve Thompson
