Gordon, you're correct, but trying to convince many - especially businesses - of this logic, can be next to impossible ;-)
The problem doesn't seem to be so much with management not wanting to change - it seems to be with fear of the IT dept. Many companies still seem to be under the dictat of the IT dept and allow the IT dept to do what it wants rather than management telling the IT dept what it wants and please implement it! The IT dept is there to provide a SERVICE to the company, not the other way around!
The howls of anguish that came from USERS when their IT depts foisted the ribboned Office 2007 on them had to be heard to be believed. But of course to trot out the old saying - "no-one gets fired for buying Microsoft....."
