The Mac, SBS, and Parallels
I don't know if it's as a result of the holidays or what but we've seen more Macs in the first couple of weeks of 2007 then I have ever I believe. And in the Small Business environment as well. The new 24" HD IMac really is a thing of beauty. They know how to make an easy to setup box with everything you need. No mess only a wireless keyboard, mouse and iPod type control for media. Well that being stated getting it to connect to an SBS network can be intimidating but is doesn't have to be.
The one things we've seen you need bar none is to get Virtual machine usage with Parallels software. It works tremendously with the Mac. Even allowing you to seamlessly switch screens (in only a way that the Mac can do) between the Windows XP environment and Mac OS X. And still the killer reason to use the Parallels software? Outlook. There just isn't as easy an interface to use as Outlook. I think you're seeing that in a lot of software that Microsoft is using lately in the style of Outlook. Why? It's so dang easy to use. Everybody gets it. When it comes to email and calendaring on an SBS network, Outlook still is king. And yes even though the Mac users can get Entourage 2004 for free if they request it.
Anyway definitely get the Parallels software. Highly recommended.
