sequence analysis software

I have used MacVector on a Mac.

It is really nice. It makes pretty plots and pictures out of its protein
analysis tools (publishable even).  It has alot of analysis options from the
obvious aa translation to hydrophobicity and acidity plots. In general, it is
intuitive to use and the results are presented in an easy to understand way (I
am a pure user, I have never authored any software). I learned alot just using
it to explore my clones.
Draw back. It is expensive. The site liscence is prohibitive. Otherwise, they
give you decoder keys for as many copies as you buy, and you can't get around
it by using a network.

Hope this helps,
