O'Reilly takes a look at BLAST.

"Why Unix? Because BLAST, like many other bioinformatics applications, was originally developed in Unix. It is the most common operating system for computational biology research. If you have a Windows PC, you can install one of the inexpensive Unix-like operating systems such as Linux or FreeBSD on a spare partition or drive."
