Submission + - Mac's and Disaster Recovery plans?

An anonymous reader writes: My current organization is working on a revised DR plan. The systems administration team is pushing for the use of Mac laptops for DR. One such example of a need for it is the event that a virus takes out our windows based network and a non windows OS is needed for recovery. A non windows OS that has full hardware and software support to avoid different vendors passing the buck. Unfortunately we are receiving a lot of push back from management which seems to be caused by a knee-jerk reaction based on the outdated idea that "Mac is for artists, not business". Is anyone out there including Mac's in their DR plan, or for any related reasons? I cannot imagine we are the only people who see a huge boon to using Mac's in security related matters.

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
