Depends... usually Solaris... sometimes linux (either intel or powerpc)...
much less frequently (and only because of special applications) MacOS of
some flavor.

Keep in mind that most hard core *biologists* use either windows or mac.
Of those who are brave enough to venture into the unix world, most will
not have root access to install server applications.  Those that do have
root access typically don't have developed sys admin skills.

Just my observations...
