    By the way, I am wondering what hardware and operating system you are using to run your proprietary software (scanning 100.000 options realtime, etc.). Must be something high sophisticated?

  4. Although I use neither Linux or Mac OSX, I have heard that some UNIX and Linux geeks are considering Mac OSX as a useful alternative. As I understand it, Mac OSX provides both Unix internals (FreeBSD on the Mach kernel) for hard-core programmers and a pretty desktop with a full range of non-Microsoft apps. Some think the hardware is pricy, but a mid-range box does come with a fairly nice set of built-in features (DVD-R/CD-RW drive, gigabit ethernet, dual-head graphics card, DDR SDRAM, developer tools, etc.)

    Just another alternative answer for the poll (midway between the Mac OS and Linux/Unix answers :) )

    Happy computing,
