---- The real world? The way you speak reminds me of elephants at a very early age are tied with heavy ropes or chains that they can't break from and as they get older, the ropes are very thin and the elephants just gave up trying to break free so they never do. The real world is compromised of improvised networks, some meticulously managed and some deliberately unmanaged and most in the middle somewhere. My employer provides everyone with an iMac or PowerBook and few shared resources, a USB hard disk for TM backups and I sort of hate it but that's because my primary environment is managing 50+ Linux servers. The days of proprietary / OS specific applications that need to be installed and maintained on everyone's desktop system are pretty much numbered in favor of web driven or SAAS but will make the OS somewhat meaningless anyway. That's the real world.
