My labgroup ordered a pallet of apples and I have been on a windows box until now. I was hoping you guys could tell me what software I need and what procedures I'll need to do in order to get back up and functioning. My main needs are: tunneling into a unix server and running remote programs via an x window (you can tell how much I already know about that.), pdf organization (I've got endnote, but I hear I can search in a group pdfs from the finder), and how to utilize all these fresh cores as an xgrid server (it's already set up by a coworker I believe, but I'd to know how to code my own too). Any other suggestions more seasoned scientists might have would be appreciate too. Thanks!
