I do IT support too (Exchange admin), and MAC products are the SCOURGE of Enterprise IT.

They are NOT Enterprise products, they dont fit in, you cant manage them (without hellaciously expensive third party products), they dont play nice with things that actually make our company money.

They are toys for executives, but we cant tell them no. You have no idea how much resources (read: money) trying to shoehorn these things into our network, only to allow the VIP's to play angry birds without using their airtime...

Yea, i'm not jaded...
