HI all, I'm a mac newbie. Sick of windows, so my macbook pro is on the way. But I have to admit to suffering some buyer's remorse/anxiety. I'm an academic researcher in genetics and several important software packages only run on windows or linux/unix. My question is, in general, do programs written for linux or unix run on Mac OS X? How does one do that... using X11 or is there an even more integrated way to do it? Am I worrying myself for nothing? In addition to my questions, if anyone has any words of wisdom about running unix programs in Mac OS X, I would really appreciate the help. Thanks in advance.
