Default macs are good but MS rules

sponsored links

macs may be good.

but businesses need interoperability, ie MS Office,

evil cyle

everyone uses Excel --> better learn Excel -> more people now use excel

and so on.

ok star office is "compatible" but it aint perfect and no business can really be botheredretraining staff etc.

OK, what's the purpose of this post? Do we hit the PC forums going: "Macs never get the blue screen of death" "What's a .dll for in the Mac environment?"
Macs can run Office, Macs can run Windows through emulation.
Microsoft makes great APPS, but their OS's are not as faultless as you want to believe.
This post was , like, so 1987.
Do some research, learn multiple OS's , post somewhere else.

I actually like Word, Excel I'm a damned master at, Internet Explorer has gotten better, I use outlook as my mail client. I have to use Windows to connect to my Novell server to do admin functions, but I like Win95 for that as it's like DOS with a GUI. I've never used 2000 or NT, so I can't comment, but when you're expecting Windows to crash with each use, I mean WTF???
Didn't some PC manufacturer make a button on their PC, recently, that emulates a ctr-alt-delete? It's about time, yet it's sad in the same sentence.
Also, I've never used OS X, but that will change very soon.
