A horse and carriage still work too. I don?t see too many of them roaming around anymore. If I want to stay competitive I better be driving something a bit more competitive. Even if the old stuff still does work for you eventually you have to get the latest and greatest unless your system is totally isolated and is only used by yourself. There comes a point where it is not longer practical to make the old work with then new and in our field that time keeps getting shorter and shorter.

Well the usually intelligent human beings do not throw away things that still work. Just because a company chooses not to support something I have does not mean that it doesn't work for me. Those vendors that continue to have legacy ports on their equipment are the ones who will get my money. Ala http://www.netxinc.com for example.

Support for NT4 also going away... It's funny how people always want to use old stuff with new stuff and expects it all to work perfectly.

I was just on the phone with a guy who does Consulting/PC support for one of our customers, and we were discussing a printing issue. (The client had a USB printer) since we are still Running on NT4 they are unable to print, and he informed me that starting next year PC's will no longer have the parallel or serial ports ONLY USB. Has anyone heard this? I noticed the post about the WYSE terminals dropping legacy support. Does this hold for PC's too? Jason "
