Apple Just when I thought the company I once admired greatly couldn't sink any lower. "Over the last two years, Apple has been engaged in vicious legal battles over smartphone patents, many of which are aimed at squelching (or squeezing money out of) manufacturers of devices running Android. And now, for some reason, it has given valuable patents to a patent troll - which is using them to sue many of the top technology companies in the world."

I know that it is futile to try and have a reasonble discussion with you ... but ... please I beg you don't try to portray yopurself for what you are not.

When you state that apple and MS are comparable when it comes to networking it becomes self evident that you are newbies in IT and have not dealt with an enterprise network .... nuff said

1995 is calling and wants you to return your IT-challenged mgt team. Mixed networks work very well these days when the infrastructure is properly configured and managed. We see it on a daily basis here in 2011.

Appletalk!!

Yeah, things are far more standardized than they used to be, but it'd be nice if Windows would include other sharing technologies, like NFS. I do mean out of the box support.

SMB is kind of a pain either way, hopefully SMB4 gets released at some point to start replacing some Active Directory servers.
