Apple Seeks Standard To Appease Angry University Net Managers

When I asked the IT manager at my daughter's university if she could use an airport express connected to the ethernet outlets in the dorm to allow wireless use of a MacBook Pro and an iPad his answer was " absolutely not, Apple wireless devices mess up the network ".
And although I was tempted I didn't set up her MacBook as a hotspot.

I have seen too many colleges, universities, schools, etc. jump on the Apple deals because they sounded so good only to find out that the Apples presented more challenges and costs in the long wrong.
I wonder why so many businesses; major and minor, use Windows PC's? Could it be that they are actually better suited to networked environments; allowing IT to set up the PC with less headaches.
One might say that the Windows PC is more prone to virus's, hacking, etc., but that argument is weak. Any good IT dept. will have the PC's set up and ready for such attacks, minimizing the chances of successful attacks.
