Seeing as most molbiol programs exchange data in a text formatof one sort
or another this is not  really a problem.

I would suggest that you pick the platform with which you are most
familiar/happy/most productive on.  If you find you're not fighting the
machine then your work will go more smoothly, and there is in fact a pile
of molbiol software for all the platforms (except possibly Amstrad (-: ). 


Is your problem that you have no experience of different OSes or that
you're not being allowed to have your first choice?  Or something else?

Followups set.

Cheers,

Richard
