  • Discussion Question: Operational Platform Preferences
Let’s discuss the topic of industry standard operational platforms, PC versus MAC, Linux versus Windows, and lastly Oracle versus SQL Server. It’s common for many individuals to strongly prefer one over the other as it relates to their chosen platform. When working in the IT field, you’ll be trained on various operating systems. In addition to that, you are free to specialize in a particular platform; for example, Windows and PCs or MACs and Mac OSs. 

Discuss which operating system (s) you’re familiar with. Are you open to exploring the other system for which you’re less familiar with? What have you found to be the most challenging to learn? What advice can you offer to support someone who is new to your favorite platform based on what you have learned this week and your experience.
