Enterprise Desktop Alliance formed to promote Apple Macs in corporate environments

“Five software companies on Monday launched an alliance to promote the use of Apple Macs in corporate environments managed with Microsoft Windows,” Antone Gonsalves reports for InformationWeek.

“Members of the Enterprise Desktop Alliance include Atempo, Centrify, Group Logic, LANrev, and Parallels. The companies provide technology that focuses on interoperability between Mac OS X and Windows, and partner in integrating their products to provide broader offerings,” Gonsalves reports.

“The alliance’s work will initially focus on education to fix the misperception that Macs are difficult to use in Windows environments, Peter Frankl, founder and chief operating officer of LANrev, said. The alliance has launched a Web site to help in the education effort and hopes to sponsor seminars on the topic in the future,” Gonsalves reports.

  1. Actually, that might be my fault!

    I wrote a reply to Crash’s post – which effectively stated that we were hypocrites for denigrating Vista, yet were willing to install it under Parallels/VMWare – in which I said that, if MSFT cared about the opinions of its consumers (private and corporate), we’d still be able to buy OEM and retail copies of XP and then we could ignore Vista.

    There was then some comment about P.T Barnum, Microsoft and Dell charging $50 for people to up/down/sidegrade to Windows XP and then I finished it off by asking how Intel’s migration to Vista was progressing.

    Is it possible I offended someone?
