What’s with this “either-or” thinking lately?  “Windows” or bust!  Give me “Linux” or give me death!  An “Apple” a day keeps the viruses at bay!   All in all, it can get pretty contentious, even in the IT world.  But is taking such a strong stance really necessary?  Shouldn’t it all be about value, cost, and …

I’m always amazed when I hear an Open Enterprise Server customer hasn’t deployed iPrint in their enterprise.  First of all, it’s a free entitlement for being current with your Open Enterprise Server maintenance.  What’s not to like about free?  And more importantly, it’s incredibly easy to use and saves lots of time for both end-users …
