Corporate users are waking up

See this fantastic story on CNET about some CIO in England who says he’s tired of getting extorted by Microsoft and now intends to fight back by using Linux and Macs. Money quote: “I feel we are being railroaded, and the market generally forced (us) into a corner or even a cul-de-sac. In a free market, we have made Microsoft dominant, and now we have the collective responsibility to reverse this situation to re-establish balance and competition. If I am being driven down the Vista route, then an Apple Mac is smarter money and cheaper.”
