It’s about time that the Information Technology Staff doesn’t mandate equipment choice just because it makes their job easier or some false sense of security.  Further, now companies will benefit from the experimentation of their employees efforts with the devices that work best. When workers see other workers solutions are better, they will switch on their own dime. Great for everyone, including IT.
