Hi there I am just curious to know who uses a Mac at his/her workplace. I changed several jobs in the last years and always used my computer. I don't like the idea of having two: one for work and one for leisure. I am not smart enough, it would be too confusing. I for instance came from a "Mac friendly" environment but recently ended up in an office where the IT guy looked at my shiny Macbook Pro and said: "Dunno anything 'bout Macs and I don't want them in my network. That's all" (luckily, I could circumvent the problem by using WinXP on Parallels to get in the network). All I can say from my experience as a researcher is that in "hard science" departments IT staff are rather geeky and like Macs as polished Unix machines: Windows or Linux are accepted though. Finance departments or business schools seem instead to be a bit more "conservative" and closed to other OS's. They tend to stick with Windows, and badly tolerate Linux (a Soviet plot?) or Macs (too metrosexual?). Out of curiosity, how's the situation in your workplace? Thanks PS Maybe this question has been asked over and over. I tried to look in the archives but couldn't find anything. Please, don't flame me if I missed something.
