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 …

Score:Unrated

I developed it to remove GroupWise Clients (those that utilize MSI) which were installed with all different configurations throughout the enterprise. Most everyone was on GW802.
