re: Windows 8: 8 Big Benefits For SMBs
Article is nothing more than yet another W8 sales pitch.
W8 Kinks to work out? Yea.
W8 Take the plunge? ---yea, into boiling oil.

Stop playing around wasting time and money and getting nothing but silly restrictions in return. You want benefits? Simply skip the entire Win 8 mess and move straight up to Desktop Linux. You will learn more, do more, and pay far less. Linux will help make your business healthy and your users happy--very happy.
Best of all, with Linux you actually get a choice of the desktop UI you want to use--there are several available based on your specific needs and desires. Pick Gnome 3, Unity, or a choose a simple light-weight LXDE desktop. Incredibly secure, powerful, easy to use, and free from restrictions on use or distribution to other systems--as many as you want and also the same for servers!

So BYOD, a Linux computer! Only then will you have THE power.

I went to purchase a new lap top last night. There's not a chance in hell I'd buy a computer loaded with Windows 8. It is the biggest cluster &^%$ Microsoft has produced to date.

Unfortunate choice of article format. I cannot use it. That also means that I don't get to see and on/click on your ads or sponsors. Please reconsider your options.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
