This is what I thought also originally, although a quick look through the
ITD locations guide prooved me wrong when I started here.I actually
(and not everbody would agree) prefer the Broadway labs as they are a lot
more open and most have windows to the outside world.Sure the markets
puters have a little more grunt and i just as much as most would love to
have Linux boxes down there but could you imagine the majority of
Law/Buisness students walking up a Linux box and scratching thier heads.
I think it's kinda fair for them to be using Uncle Bills finest as in
thier careers they'll probaly have to put up that damn piece of bloatware
for many years to come. :)
Aside, the general consensus of ITD labsups, etc is to make things as
transparent as possible to the user.I'm sure most people could comprehend
how many times per day ITD staff do Word conversions for ppl saving thier
documents in Word 97 at home to come in and find Word 6.0 spits the dummy
not to mention other M$ products. I'm sure this time would be better spent
maintaining h/ware and keeping everything functional. So I can be safe in
saying that the majority of them would like to have 95/NT with at least
Pentium II and the latest and greatest apps but i suppose this is the real
world...darn there goes the two Voodoo 2's I've dreamed of to upgrade the
s'pose that's my 2c
