OS Freedom

I’m at some internal MySQL training today at our US HQ. In a room of 11 people we are all using our laptops for access to additional machines. The beauty of this is we have Linux (Ubuntu 5.10, 6.10, 7.04, Red Hat Fedora), Mac OS/X and Windows Operating Systems on various staff machines. It’s great to realize we are not locked into just one infrastructure, and we have the ability to all do our work effectively and MySQL works just as well across these technologies. I can’t however SSH from my iPhone yet, unlike my previous Nokia E62 PDA.
