Re: Alternatives?

"As others have said there's a lot of specialist kit for which only Windows drivers and/or applciations exists "

In my experience it's quite the opposite. The MRI, NMR, robot of some sort or whatever will often use a Unix-based OS to run the machine and interact with its storage and hardware and then there will be console or two which might well provide the output/control input and which might be a Windows PC.
