Mnova is a multiplatform software which will run alternatively on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Unix-like systems.
From now on, multiplatform laboratories will be able to allow each researcher to work on their Operating System of choice, and to seamlessly share data and processing capabilities with other researchers working on different platforms. There is no need to have three different software packages, and three different file formats, for different Operating Systems.
