Follow ups

Lots of discussion about this post from yesterday going on around various places. Notably Geek News Central and Joy.

To follow up Joy’s point, she’s right. I’m not going to sit here and tell you one version of software is better hands down, because it’s all relative. MS stuff is better for me in my situation because it introduces fewer problems with users. If I could encompass my whole professional philosophy in one thought it would be this:

“Your PC is a tool to help you do your job, whatever the job may be. The measure of any tool is whether you can do what you need to do with it. If you can, with minimal complications, it’s the right tool. If it’s not, you need a different tool.”

That part of IT should be simple, the trickier part is anticipating what tool you’re going to need 3 years from now!
