Do you know what OS your shops run on? VMS, MVS?
Is your company's Enterprise software canned to customized?
Is the source code COBOL?

I have to learn MS Office for school, and it is impressive.
I'm no fan of Big Bill's collusion with hardware manufactures,
but his investment in developing an integrated desktop
application has produced impressive results. It's easy

the Gates'" in the desktop arena.
