We (the IT dept.) has forced iOS devices on every employee in the company...
...and almost everybody (except a couple of Apple haters) are very happy about it.
But we are not a MS only dungeon.
Re: Another example of why Linux fails to gain market share
Androids problem is that it is not directly compatible with any other Linux, it is the "Windows RT" of the Linux world. We do love Android but it is not the tablet Linux we all would like to have.
Ubuntu is not the leader, the leaders are RedHat, SuSE and Debian everything else is a derivative of one of those.
No we do not want to promote Ubuntu because Ubuntu is not the best solution for anything, it is not even the best UI experience.
Re: Who remembers ...
...thus he will end up with the Windoze of the Linux world.
Is "BYOD: a bigger headache for IT bosses than Windows Metro?".
Should be: "BYOD: a bigger headache for IT bosses of Windows-only environments".
Microsoft centric IT bosses hoped that Windows 7 will be a new XP (10 year safe run).
They have not accepted the fact that there never again will be another 10 year version of Windows.
Re: Going down
OLPC is a success maybe not as a product but as a concept and TFA is a really good example of this.
The HARDWARE is the problem
As I see it the PC hardware is simply not suited for virtualization, we need Intel-based heavyweight servers which are NOT necessary DOS/Windows compatible. We need hardware supporting much more throughput than DOS/Windows compatible servers can provide. I may be wrong... but again... I may me right.
Group Policies are a solution for a problem that existed in Windows: the need to run with administrative rights. Now they are (mis)used for anything just because they are there.
First man fired for buying Microsoft
A municipality in Sweden has recently fired a man for re-buying Microsoft licenses...
The days of "No one gets fired for buying Microsoft" are finally over.
"...like ROT13 on Fidonet, mailing lists, etc."
Does ROT13 work on more developed languages (languages using more than 26 letters) than english ?
Real world called...
I've been recently asked by one of our employees if I can get him something better than that Windows-crap he got now on his current work laptop...
...he is now running OpenSuSE. It is really only a platform for running Citrix client but so was his Windows.
I'm in a very good situation where I can give people almost anything I like as long as they can do their work. There are no real corporate policy telling me that we use Windows.
Morale from this short story is... if Windows wasn't bundled there wouldn't be only 1% Linux... there wouuld be probably 10%.
Only one in four ??
Then you don't know what you're looking for.
I'm getting what I'm looking for 7 out of 10 times on Google, and that's not porn I'm looking for (when you are looking for porn, then you are only getting 1 of 4).
Didn't we see similiar behaviour...
...in the Stacker case many years ago.
