A mixed group of scientists here has proposed purchasing GCG, running on
an Alpha workstation of some description.
My question is which operating system: OSF/1 (Unix by any other name would
smell as sweet) or OpenVMS?
We are probably more familiar with VMS; arguements are advanced that most of
the tools for molecular biology are being developed in a Unix environment.
Against this, I've ported several to VMS with minimal trouble.
I'm interested in your opinions and prejudices on this issue.
