I would like to offer my users access to SeqLab from Macs and PC in
their labs and offices, but cost of X software for many hundreds of
machines is a real obstacle. I have eXodus on several Macs in our
labs and it works quite well - but at $118 per copy, very few of my
users are going to buy it.
I have a copy of MI/X but it crashes when I try to run SeqLab (works
ok for other less demanding X applications).
Has anyone successfully run SeqLab with MI/X?
