re: Mac Discrimination: Bad For The Enterprise
What about support. If you have a pure MS shop and some 'exec' type brings in another operating system, and heaven forbid that this person has some issues, who will support/fix it?

It is easier to support a homogenious group of computers, rather than a mish mash of stuff. I know, I have been there.

I wish Forrester, Gardner et al had the success rate of a Magic 8 Ball. The great thing about being a pundit is that no one remembers how ofter you are wrong.

Companies will just prohibit themselves right out of business. The Mac is back. Can run multiple operating systems, including one of the best: OS X Lion, and interfaces pretty seamlessly with enterprise applications.
