IT heresy: 5 radical resolutions for 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| IT resolution No. 1: Let employees use any PC 
| they want. Give your end-users a budget so 
| that if they want something really pricey they 
| pay the difference. And if they choose 
| something basic, let them use the leftover 
| budget for other tech aids such as widescreen 
| monitors or special input devices. Offer a 
| standard option they can get preconfigured to 
| IT's specifications. Certify IT-supported apps 
| for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux -- InfoWorld 
| has heard that when employees get to choose 
| their own computer, as many as a third choose 
| Macs, so be ready for that choice. For 
| example, you might certify Microsoft Office 
| for Windows and Mac, IBM Lotus Symphony for 
| Linux, Exchange for Windows, Apple Mail for 
| Mac, and Evolution for Linux, and Firefox for 
| all three platforms. Be able to support these 
| apps in terms of their core features relevant 
| to business use.



Dell offers cheaper quick-boot system based on flash memory

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell announced Thursday that it's offering a
| memory module called Latitude On Flash that can
| boot up a computer in seconds as an option for
| some laptops. The module is available alongside
| the option of an existing quick-boot system
| that uses an Arm processor.
| Dell's Latitude On Flash module snaps into an
| internal mini-card slot and allows computers to
| boot in a few seconds, using the laptop's main
| x86 processor instead of a separate Arm chip.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
