Aozora to replace PCs
Aozora Bank is planning to switch most of its 2,300 desktop computers to Macs, in a multi-year effort to replace the company's outdated systems. A third of Aozora's computers are already Macs, and within a few months the company expects roughly 90 percent of its systems will be Macs, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. Aozora CTO Bill Chute says the company chose Macs because of due to Mac OS X, which has made the machines more functional and stable. Prior to Mac OS X, "it would have been impossible," because Macs did not have the reliability or the functionality that Aozora requires.
