Hi group, 
 I am on a survey and also to know what is the type of
computing environment, big and famous labs in
bioinformatics prefer.

  Which server ( A unix or Linux) you prefer,that has
all the important databases for critical research
purpose, considering robustness of the system. 

1. UNIX ( Digital, Solaris, IRIX that are proprietory
and robust)
2. LINUX( Free, widely used and flexible)

Folks, what would you prefer?
