Subject: CCL:Macintosh questions
I would welcome any guidance on the following questions (and
assume somebody reading this has played with new Macintoshes):
1) What is the large-scale/floating point performance between the newest
Macs and Intel machines? Is there any particular compilers and/or switches
needed to realize max performance?
2) How does OSX compare to Linux as a development environment? Can one
do C and Fortran coding (or more-modern languages) on these machines?
Are there particular problem areas?
3) Is there any problem giving presentations from a Mac rather than
a PC (both laptops)? Or, are the suitable video-out ports supported
Thanks in advance!

P.S. I figure our audience is sufficiently different to make "typical reviews"
less than valuable :-).
