Although not public domain, its gov't origins ensure very low cost...
BBN in Cambridge, MA markets Prophet.  It has been around for a long
time and tends to be more popular in clinical fields.  There is much
improvement required in the chemistry that it knows, but it does have
pretty impressive graphics, database, and table handling capability.
In any case, it is available for Suns and a number of other UNIX
workstations.

I edited down the newgroups line a bit - it probably should be cleaned
up more if we are going to discuss the relative merits of these
packages.
