Re: Take over?
Mac sales in enterprise have been growing at a 50% a year rate for over three years now.

I wonder if that's solely due to iPhones and iPads.

Re: Take over?
"71% of organizations support Macs"

Now that Macs provide the Office Suite--and I'm sure other products that I don't use--the systems are more compatible. Time was a PC couldn't read a Mac document at all and vice versa.

Take over?
While I doubt that Macs will take it over, there is no doubt that they will continue playing a bigger part. In other studies, Macs have a 5.5% share in enterprise, so the numbers themselves are malleable. But, according to IDC, Mac sales in enterprise have been growing at a 50% a year rate for over three years now. IDC has also said for over 20 years, that the more Macs in an organization, the less expensive it is to run. That hasn't changed. In all previous studies I've read, Macs ARE easier to maintain than Windows machines. This is the first one that says otherwise.
