Dear Friends, dear Professionals! For many years I wanted to begin this topic at your professional forum! It is connected with opportunity, convenience and also functionality of the Mac OS X for professionals who work in the sphere of economics and science (people who work in universities, government, etc.). I found two sites and one of them (second) shows overall performance of mac os x in this sphere. 1) http://www.urch.com/forums/phd-economics/64173-mac-vs-pc-best-economics.html 2) http://u.arizona.edu/~hirano/macosx.html So, questions are: What kind of software do You use for carrying out economic researches and for the productivity of Your work? What kind of professional text editors do You use? What kind of mail applications do You use? (for example outlook, thunderbird or smth else?) What else can You offer to download for Mac OS X to get the maximum effectiveness of the work? Thank You very much!!!
