This Apple Science podcast features Dr. Fernando Cucchietti, scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory who credits his presentation skills in giving him an advantage when applying for grants—and even in helping him get his job. Cucchietti uses a combination of tools to build graphics for his presentations, ultimately importing and organizing his files in Keynote, part of Apple’s iWork ’08 suite of productivity applications. Dr. Cucchietti noticed that the system never crashed. He started doing short simulations on it and found he never had to reboot. Before switching to Apple technology, he used Linux. His favorite open-source applications and programs were written to work with any flavor of UNIX. In the event that he or his colleagues ever want to use Linux-specific applications or do any Linux development, it’s easy to install and run Linux on a Mac.
