I use all three,
Windows/Apple/Linux (in that order, but not so much Linux) - reality is that
90% of the machines in the WORLD are Microsoft based. There must be a reason
for it. Say what you want, but the numbers are still there.
All programs have their good points as well all programs really stink in
Because everyone is readily shared their problems with Windows, I'll go the
opposite way and share problems I see with Linux and Apple are:
1. Corporate Image - the stereotypical picture of a Linux admin/user
to a majority of people/managers/decision makers is not very conducive to
2. Fragmentation - ask 100 Linux prop-heads which distro is best for
your office and get 101 answers.
3. Versions - everyone knocks Windows for the different versions, but
how many are there for say just SUSE, in the past 10 years?
4. Training and Trainers. Not too many classes being offered, or
instructors running around at the moment. Is Linux that easy to learn that
these training facility and folks are not offering it full time?
won't make it because it is a cult. Period. The world is more than funny ads
and young 'metro' sales/knowledge advisor's.
It is still clunky in interface, unable to rename mapped drives, restrictive
usage for left hander's, unable to resize a window anywhere, and closing a
program doesn't really mean closing a program.
As well all that hardware you bought for your other machines are now
useless. Meaning non-swappable.
4. Try resizing open
windows. Can only do it in the bottom right corner for some
reason. Windows does it anywhere.
5. Closing a program.
Option+Q otherwise it docks down below. I want it closed when I click
on "close" button (what a concept eh).
Egad, I feel like I'm back in
early 90's or stuck in some Microsoft Works 3.0 vortex.
People like shiny things and Office 2007 is just that.
Pain in the butt to learn,
switch over to, but shiny to look at when working with it. Actually I
am starting to like it.
