And universities... IT departments in universities can be just as
strange. My professor, a mac user for a particular program
(Accordance), instead of being permitted to bring in his own computer
at his own expense was given a very very very bottom of the barrel PC
gray-box and some Mac emulation software.
Now which do you think is going to be more of a challenge to support?
But yes, they image everything as well and if education is a market for
RunRev on the backend, this would work well enough there too.
Maybe we should just get the engine preloaded, or perhaps I don't see
why that is any more dangerous than any other engine being installed
(.NET, java, etc... they're (in some sense) all very similar))
I did see some information about homestacks being infiltrated by a
HyperCard virus, but that seems unlikely to be anymore dangerous than,
for example, MS Office or Windows in general.
