My antivirus software says my contract is expired and wants me to renew, but their renewal process ends with Internet Explorer saying it can’t display the web page. While wasting time with all this, it dawned on me to ask why entire corporations don’t settle on Macs for all their employees.
What I’m getting at is that in other threads here, and in discussions elsewhere, I keep hearing about Macs that “they just work”. I bet I could come up with a dozen situations where my company’s IT group spent several days fighting with some stupid PC problem, for me specifically, that seemed like it shouldn’t have happened. Always, I accepted what seemed the conventional wisdom - nobody actually thinks Windows is a good operating system, but everybody has to use it, because everybody else uses it, and the IT group can’t support two platforms.
But couldn’t entire companies choose Macs instead, and let PCs be the outlawed platform?
I’m sure some do, but why don’t most? Is it not true that Macs “just work”? I bet my work PC, which cost about $1500, also has about $10,000 or $20,000 of timewasting battles in it by now.
