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?
