Ditch the IT Workarounds and Get More Done on Your Mac
Even with the rise of OS-agnostoic, web-based review platforms, many modern e-discovery review applications require you or your network administrator to install Internet Explorer on your device. Lawyers using Apple computers are often told by IT departments to run their Mac in what’s called “dual-boot mode”, utilizing more than one operation system, or to run Windows emulation software like CrossOver, Wine or Lutris on their computer. These solutions are cumbersome, resource-depleting, and difficult to learn. Worst of all, they make it difficult for lawyers on Macs to be as productive as they otherwise would be.
Further, installing a dual-boot partition requires more computer processing power and unnecessarily takes up a lot of hard disk space. Transferring files between partitions is difficult, and Mac programs are unavailable while in the Windows partition. Similarly, emulation software or “VMware” has a steep learning curve, is expensive to install and maintain, and chews up disk space, effectively slowing down the computer. You already know it, but we’ll come out and say it: these IT workarounds aren’t worth the trouble, and they inhibit your ability to do your job effectively.
