Change can often be slow. It took many years for the Mac to begin to even threaten the PC in the enterprise. It is still a slow process, but Apple is making up ground on Microsoft.
For many years, Macs were perceived as being more for the creative folks, such as art designers, but had no role in a workplace where data processing was the main job. So when companies made bulk purchases, they turned to Windows and Office.
But the times they are a changin'. According to IDC, Apple’s U.S. market share for the quarter ended Sept. 30 jumped from 10.5 percent to 11.3 percent.
