'you win'. But, we weren't talking about small business. I was
thinking more about large organisations where the decisions are big
contracts to companies based on the shrink wrap that Rachel raised.
I agree re small business. I see it every day in another club I
belong to. Some folks 'get it'. Others are babes in the woods. Last
night I reminded someone about copy paste in order to prepare a flyer
with info coming from two different sources. Once I said that, she
said, oh yeah, I remember now. Some skills just aren't used often.
But whether the small business uses OO or MSO, the lack of skills
will be no different as a result. And buying from MS just uses up
funds that could be used to cover the cost of training. Have I missed
something in that?
