Discussion on what runs/does not run under windows has moved me to asked is 
there a somewhat preferred platform of Linux vs. OSX.  I am replacing an 8 year 
old Mac Pro, big silver box, as it really is slowing down comparatively 
speaking and 8 years is a good run for a computer and it will get re-purposed 
in the lab.  I have been looking at fairly high end workstations since I tend 
to keep them a while and at that upper ends it appears the prices start to 
become similar.  Little hard to make direct comparisons but I am looking at an 
Intel Xeon, reasonable amount of memory etc....   I originally was leaning 
towards a Mac Pro but given Apple's tendency to only give you outputs and 
inputs of their choice I am not sure on that  now.  So any opinions welcome.  I 
am equally happy using Linux or OSX.
