Yeah yeah, someone has to come and prove me wrong :)
Of course, it's still a pain in the ass for the techs who learn their trade via MSCE and whatnot and then wind up charged with messing with sprockets and whatnot. Though I'd argue that anyone who gets their job based on an MSCE deserves the trouble. You all must have quite the IT staff, because I've worked in a mixed OS company (unix/windows/macOS) and a mixed OS school (ironically enough in Kansas City, the bane of school desegregation efforts) and compatability certainly is a problem. I've always been really impressed by Virtual PC though. It's obviously slow (at least on a g3-400 w/ an ungodly amount of RAM), but just as stable as Windows (which doesn't say much) and runs most software. I'm not anti-mac (actually spend a good deal of time working on a cube w/ cinema view screen) and it seems you have a well-integrated office there. Just pointing out that the type of people impressed by the previously mentioned epods demo would most likely be the same PHBs who fawn over the TiBook and force their IT staff to integrate with an established network.
Back on topic, does anyone know yet if the XP Term. client will pass audio at all? In which direction? The mic on the epods seems decent enough (using the MS voice recorder app), so it would have some cool uses.
