    Hardware technology changes over time, as well as software; where's the standard? If you consider the Munich experience, clearly standardizing on Linux is relatively complex. And that's just one city, in one medium sized country. My own view is that we should not strive for a particular standard, but more flexibility; VM technology allows flexibility without a serious sacrifice with respect to OS or userland.

    When it comes to hardware I agree, but there was a case at work many years ago when the company I worked for started to buy IBM with microchannel architecture. This caused problems because nothing was interchangeable with other hardware we had onsite.

    But when it comes to documentation like a word processor document it is nice when it can be standardized so it can be read by people around the world with different word processors. I have to admit I am starting to like online apps like Google Doc and Google slides, etc.
