Re: Dell blind loyalty to Redmond as usual
I am a big MS fan. I don't mind admitting it. But I like to keep an open mind and also from a wide range of personal experience not to mention the holes my customers find themselves in I believe strongly in the best solution for the situation.
And that's not always Windows. If a particular bit of kit fits the bill then that's what goes in, be it Windows, Linux or a Chromebook.
Two years ago I was a bit sniffy about Chromebooks, but I felt I had to actually use one to see how it worked and could fit in for customers. So I bought a Samsung (had to wait as they were hard to get), unpacked it and put it on my desk and thought I'd 'battle on' with it for a few days.
After 10 mins I was truly stunned at how simple and well it fitted into my situation.
Always pays to keep an open mind. You are not being fair to your customers or yourself if you won't try or look at something different. It makes your world very very small.
It's up to MS to come up with something similar that fits the bill.
