Choosing a Vendor

I have a simple test for determining the quality of a vendor. Of course, I have no budget, and few listen to me, so my test does not see much use. But if you wonder at the intricacies of buying computing equipment, here’s the test.

Is their supporting documentation privileged? If so, it’s not worth your time or money.

That is all.

If checking the documentation is too hard, here’s another test that you can apply using only software press releases. Does it contain the words “enterprise” or “robust”? If so, they most likely mean it has a robust scent.
