Linux or Unix for multiple sequence analysis?

Dear netters,

Linux or Unix
Genetic data environment?

After some strugle we managed to install some nice nucleotide sequence 
analysis programs on a LINUX machine (pentium). We are interested in 
analysis of rather large numbers of sequences over say 500-4500 positions 
(16S/18S rRNA. That is, multiple alignments, probe and primer searching, 
phylogeny (Neighbour-joining, Parsimony, Max likelihood?).  Now we have a 
chance to apply for some money for improvement.
Question:  Will we gain much by buying a UNIX machine. What sort of 
computer would we need? Where can we obtain the Genetic data environment 
we keep hearing about. What does it do?

Cherio,
