Re: Military and NT
Being Military, I can tell you what is happening to us. We are being
forced to switch to NT (from Novell) regardless of the fact that Novell is
by far, more secure and a much better product overall. Everyone wonders
WHO was paid off, cause this is costing the tax payers millions and
millions of dollars. It will cost my base atleast 2M by itself. Our
servers are not "NT Certified", our virus software will need changing, our
management software will need changing, etc. The servers will have to be
increased, the clients bought (1700+), etc. Not to mention that our
servers are doing very well right now, and they are only P100's and
P166's. With NT they will have to be P200 Pro's atleast. The e-mail
program (Exchange) will require 18 more servers (and NT, Exchange) by it's
HQ tells us they will not support anything else and they will not fund
anything else. I just wish I could switch to NT overnight, for a week,
just to show them how stupid this "plan" is!
