This is not about Mac vs. PC. This perennial debate is about productivity.  Is one truly better than the other? No.  Does this really matter? Yes. Why? Because it’s not about which platform is best, it’s what the user perceives to be the best. If I believe my computer makes me more productive, I win.

At Novell, we constantly ask, “how can we assure IT organizations have the tools they need to do their jobs better without impeding workforce productivity?” Our focus on workforce productivity leads to enhancing interoperability and choice.
