    Fewer now believe it's more secure than XP, says new survey

    Basically, there's no rush for businesses to deploy Vista (we all know this) however, more are considering Linux or OS X

    You can read it all here

    I've noticed that the most common question people ask me is "Are Macs compatible with MS Office?" Pages & Keynote are, then there's a choice of Open Office or Neo Office - which are both compatible with office formats...

    Hmm...no one wants to comment on this. Well, I'll say that this is a good chance for Apple to catch up. The business world is a crucial one for computer industry growth. Let's hope some of these companies don't show cowardice and go for Vista within another year or two.

    Ya, I agree. I love iWork, but it could need a business update to make it more like Office, instead of just being artsy. Why not switch to mac?

    they might have 2nd, 3rd, 4th thought on vista, but business comm is the one who doesn't do upgrade until necessary, they probably just stick to XP.

    By the time companies finally get around to it, Windows 7 will be out!
