    When it comes to scientific calculation no one knows what OS they use, it could be UNIX or a varient of UNIX or their own custom OS

    i think it is because of the processors. the RISC used in the earlier apple computers did good data processing


    not entirely sure though.

    Why Mac for Science?

    1. Freedom to focus on your research
    2. Open, flexible, UNIX-based platform
    3. Streamlined networking across platforms
    4. Lower total cost of ownership
    5. Accelerating time to results
