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.

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.
