Okay. First off, my schools Tech system (laptops/server) is not all that old. But all teachers and students agree (its a small school) its shockingly unreliable and badly set up. I'm thinking that maybe I can produce a propasal/presentation for the IT team asking wether or not we should switch to mac. Obviously I will need to illustrate the downsides which are: Cost of completely new hardware ( I mean completely new. The server/network side has literally become unusable now) Lerning curve (solution* mac is easy to learn, runs windows, and a large portion of the school uses mac at home. I could teach people how to! Not to mention the student IT teacher uses Mac) but I want to focus on the good sides. Obviously mac is better from a user point of view. Most files taken from windows it is compatible with, and you can save iWork files to work with windows. It is built for dummies (no offence). And is slightly more reliable. But what about from an administrators point of view? How does it work? Mac OS server? What benefits would there be? In shorter words, how do I convince closed minded windows using IT guys to switch to mac? [MONDO UPDATE] I realized that switching to mac probably won't happen and probably won't benefit the school much...due to the hassle of switching.... But the other reason I posted here is because productivity is killed with the current set up and teachers really do use IT a lot at my school... I'm just wondering how I press for a change...maybe not a full hardware change but a serious reform of how it works.
