The corporate intranet is the Veterans Administration Hospital system, and
they refuse to upgrade or tweak their servers until Vista is less
troublesome. It is the same with my eldest daughter's corporation, and
several others I have heard of. I know we could get a native XP business
laptop from Lenovo as this is a more common problem than many know. But they
are in the $2500+ range. And local companies are selling basic Vista
machines right now for $4-600.
My daughter was able to get her company to provide her with a laptop already
configured. The US Government is not so generous since some very sensitive
laptops were stolen a couple of years ago. So when my DH travels, he needs
his own that can hook into the VA intranet and not download sensitive files
onto the hard drive. Any other ideas?
