Vista No Show

Yahoo!Finance Survey suggests Buyers are a No Show

These numbers from Yahoo!Finance indicate to me that someone is going to have trouble making their numbers this fiscal year... keep your eyes open for more illegal activities.

This might be a good time to remind everyone of my "best practices" choices for small business technology departments (I have been on this soapbox for over 10 years):
  1. Move all users to Apple Mac (except CFO and their immediate staff)
  2. Replace all servers with RedHat Linux based servers
  3. Replace mission critical RDBMS apps with Sybase on Sun
I know what you are thinking, "Why be so cruel to the bean counters?" Until IBM's Lotus re-releases Improv for the Mac, they will just have to make do with XP based tools.

If you really like the folks in finance, buy them each a Mac mini.

Not a very realistic solution for your organization? The hand has been writing on the wall for some time. When will you be ready? Unless you plan for it: never.
