systems from the same vendor, as it is assumed that these systems have
seen a priori more testing time and are thus more reliable than any
multi-vendor combination has seen/would be.
Should there be a problem, it is also a lot easier and faster to get
support from a vendor, when he can't first try and blame the other
vendors box, or the translator in between. Here, again, risk
While the lock-in is indeed a bad thing, it is still considered the
lesser evil, compared to the effort needed to do q/a testing in mixed
systems on nation-size scale plus R&D for the translators plus
battling for support with N competing vendors, all blaming each other.
This is the oh-so-familiar argument on why many companies use
exclusively Microsoft, or everything Apple, etc...
Just my 0.05 chf on why translators did not happen... (yet?)
If the human brain was simple enough for us to understand we'd be so
simple we couldn't understand.
Prove this by induction.
