In many companies it's simply impossible to overcome the M$ bias and
inertia, even in the face of hard comparison data. In most cases the
decision-makers don't really know the first thing about technology,
I wish there was a way to slap some sense into people who don't listen
to technical arguments, or even business arguments, out of pure
ignorance and inertia.
Inertia isn't all bad. Those same decision-makers have managed to defer or
avoid migrating to Vista... In any business, it comes down to cost. Some small
companies can survive the costs associated with running an unscalable
infrastructure. For others, limitations like this
will severely hamper
their productivity, and that racks up fast. When they run into a wall, they'll
have no choice but to look for an alternate solution. If they never run into a
wall, then there's no point in worrying about them.
