Windows Caveats

Many small businesses rely on proprietary equipment and software which was only designed to run on or with Microsoft Windows. In some cases there are open-source replacements or workarounds for these situations, but in many instances, unfortunately, there are not. This is always something to keep in mind when moving forward with a new equipment or software platform purchase—because once your business becomes reliant on the purchased item, you are locked-in to it and also its secondary (sometimes hidden) tools and platforms.

When purchasing new equipment and software, it's always good to take into account the following:

  • What dependencies does the equipment/software have? (e.g., operating system support and required third party tools.)
  • How long does the equipment/software guarantee support for its product? (e.g. bug fixes and security updates.)
  • Is the equipment/software standards-compliant? Many industries have standards, developed by committee, that define specifications for that industry. In the software realm, there are many standards for various fields, and these help insure that common formats are available (e.g. for a file type) and that no single company or entity can take control of the standards to write them in a way that benefits only themselves.
