Broken record time. Your infrastructure is only as good as the planning you put in. My main schtick is MS (no bootcamps) and in my experience any system correctly scoped, planned and configured will work very nicely. Sure unix based things do work better but the sad state of affairs is that a lot of companies IT support consist of point and click jockeys. Partly because a lot of people have more to do in life than read books when they can get by with clicking next and google, but partly because the trend in IT is quicker, more with less involvement and understanding.
If you wanna stick your business critical bits and bobs in the fluffy outside (we heart the cloud eh) then if it goes to custard point the finger at them but you are still down for as long as it takes and christ I bet its more complex than an in-house build. If you want to keep control then invest in training, planning and trust the people you employ. You (hopefully) won't regret it.
You'd be very surprised how changing a 3yr old hdd will give you a performance boost. Being the only mechanical part with moving thingummies in it they are bound to fail. Just cause 'there's an app for it' when you need to upgrade doesn't mean you won't need someone at some point to swapsie the main drive. If I owned a mac I would prefer not to use the monopoly (apple care) and use the cheapest provider of parts and labour as there are several shops out there selling cheap hard drives.
Hey ho let the thumbs down commence from the rabids.
We used to call them terminals..... Even wyse had a laptop out years back in which you could have wifi.
Your it house is only as good as your planning and infrastructure allow. If it takes off and genuinely saves business money then great however will business trust google implicitly? Plus if it takes the burden off it does that mean it jobs going to the wall?
