Apparently AT&T is evaluating different operating systems, including Mac OS X and Linux, as alternatives to Microsoft Windows for internal use.
We’re glad to see a major player like AT&T is doing such a thing. The vulnerabilities that Windows has produced for major IT corporations and their data, especially recently, is pretty sad. Once the evaluations have undergone rigorous testing, these testers will see where the Windows platform fails in security and stability against it’s counter parts (Mac OS X & Linux) first hand. Needless to say, we think the test findings will be interesting to hear.
