Sometimes, IT leaders are told that the company runs Windows, period. But that doesn't stop them from wishing for the forbidden fruit: One CIO explains why he'd like to bring Apple to his enterprise.
I think this is the main reason why Windows has the majority marketshare. All companies just stick with windows. Its their default. And they think its too much bother to change OS. Sigh...there are better OS's out there people
Yup. Most companies are like the 'old' and are unwilling to try anything new.
Everyone using Windows is obviously some fat guy in a suit getting worked up over spreadsheets... a lot like those accurate commercials. (sentimental sigh)
i wouldnt mind trying Mac OS. It seems to become popular now.
It can take a little getting used to if you've been using Windows for years and years, but it's like a breath of fresh air. Time Machine rules.
This guy is clearly a paper tiger. There are many, many reasons the Mac is inappropriate for the enterprise. From Scalable Directory services to GPOs, OEM availability and pricing ... etc., etc., ...
for actually talking some sense. A bunch of people who sync their iPODS on their Mac's suddenly think they know what the backend of a major companies IT systems look like.
As an IT Manager, if you want a Mac as a client then sure but for the backend you can forget it!
When I started at my company there were zero Macs - now more than a third of us, some in every department, are using MacBooks.
We run Mac Pro's some with boot camp to run autocad and others use OSX for adobe suite. everything runs smooth and the office looks damn sexy with all the aluminum towers everywhere. the setup is expensive as hell but in an architecture firm it works very well. I was so impressed with OSX that I sold my hp laptop for $150 and got two macbook pro's for my wife and myself. We have been in virusless bliss for the last year, these things really do work better than windows machines. You lose some control but once you give in to the machine your productivity goes way up. I used to hate on Macs all the time, not anymore.
Please, please... no more daily Mac vs PC articles. This is getting annoying. PS. there are several irritating issues in a Mac based environment that I have experienced, so not all the time is a Mac better than a PC.
these articles are only annoying if you read them ;)
Lol using Victoria's Secret supermodels as advertising for Macintosh software...I'm sorry but if you don't get why that's funny then nvm...
Sigh...Mac's aren't all that tbh and no I can't convert you to using Windows. I use Windows because I can play all the games on there, build a PC with Windows for cheaper than a Mac and I can do everything on my PC which a Mac can do for cheaper.
Yes there are security holes on the OSX although Apple wants you to believe otherwise.
You only get viruses or spyware using Windows if you don't use your common sense, hell Windows XP is pretty awesome and Vista is good but not great. It will take its time to become alot better, I also expected problems seeing as Vista had to be designed to work on alot of different hardware configrations and it had to work with alot of different software as well.
