Earlier, I wrote:What about organisations that have to rely on apps that are written only for Windows . . . ?
Realistically, it would cost the company making the software extra money to port the apps they
make for Windows to Mac OS X. An organisation can't just ask for a Mac OS X version of the
software if a Mac OS X version of the software doesn't even exist.
Anyway, here's another reason to be realistic, an organisation can't just switch all it's desktop
workstations from PC's to Apple Mac's overnight. Especially if it has a large number of PC's.
I used to work in a call centre (over 5 years ago) with over 500 Windows based PC's in use.
It'd take a lot of time and money to replace the lot with Apple Mac computers. Not only that,
all the staff would have to be trained to use them. That'd cost even more time and money.
And would also mean lost productivity by taking staff off duty so they can be trained to
learn how to use a completely different operating system.
And lost productivity, means lost money, and no company is willing to lose money like that.
