Apple has already proven that one size does not fit all when it comes to operating systems by demonstrating the performance benefits of right-sizing an OS for a hardware platform.

This ignorance pervades corporate IT hiring, whereupon outsourcing looks pretty cheap when compared to hiring a competent American. Alas, they fail to consider the risks because IT is an EXPENSE, not an INVESTMENT. #idiots
