I'm just about to start work with a new employer after over five years, having fought tooth-and-nail with my current employers' IT department to get Apple kit in to allow me to do my job properly. As part of the run-up to the new job I've been contacted by the new employers' IT team to discuss my requirements. My hopes weren't high, having been told that they were a Dell house, running all thin-clients to desktop, and a Windows Server back-end. To my delight, the guy I spoke to was refreshingly open to the idea of ordering a Mac for me. They do already have one mac pro in-house in the media department, where I'll be a team leader, so being able to have Apple gear from the word go is a huge bonus. The IT guy was curious about the features and functionality of the Mac, but not a victim of the usual knee-jerk fear of the unknown I've experienced in the past. I explained the basics, and why I wanted what I do, and it all seems to have gone down with out a problem. In summary, it's really made me look forward to my new job and also given me an incentive to work harder when I get there. Does anyone else have tales of similar, unusual joy?
