    I guess it's the home versus work markets. 
    Home users will like Macs because they appear to be easier to user (I haven't used a Mac since 1988, so I'm somewhat out of date). Frankly, if my mother came to me to ask what computer to buy, I'd probably tell her to get a Mac.
    Business, on the other hand, uses Windows.  They won't change because it would cost too much. They've already invested a lot of infrastructure and training.  MS would have to screw-up Windows very badly to make business change.

    If Macs got very popular, MS would start shipping more apps for them.  I'd be happy to write Mac code if MS made a version of Visual Studio for OS X Big Smile
