Exactly. Why bother with an M$ OS for that?That's right. Most desktop PC's in large corps don't have any special programs on them. They have a web browser which they use to access the in-house developed s/w.
As far as exchanging files in given formats, the reason we started doing it was because of the changes M$ made to their programs. (All we ran were Windows and Office.) Word for 2002(3?) had to be saved in a previous format for years because not everyone had 2002, yet, and 2000 and earlier versions couldn't read the new raw format. That lag went on for years and years and I doubt it's gotten any better.
