Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.

What is going on these days ?

In the last week I have entered into projects with two separate customers who have been terrorized (the customer's wording, in one case) by their existing IT vendor, and want to find a new provider who won't attack them...

I find it hard to think with.

I have been told stories that demonstrate extremely poor character being played out in cases where the IT vendor has had a long-term (more than 1 year) relationship in place. One customer put it this way: "familiarity breeds contempt".

I have recently setup a Linux server to begin serving a small (12 users) legal firm that had Windows Small Business Server 2003 running. The issue was that they were not doing anything special, just FILE SERVING, and so a Linux/SAMBA solution would get them away from needing anything in the way of a proprietary server...

So I took a good look at the config details, crossed my fingers and went for it - and was very pleasantly surprised ! It was a simple task, and I have since found the software to be very stable, very fast, and easy to maintain.
