    @rosdi: Lately I see tons of Microsoft managers using Apple devices, also on premier events. On Apple devices you can run Windows, OSX and Linux and you can build iOS apps. That might be important to some people working on cross-plat tools and frameworks (.NET Core) or working on native apps

    Not sure why our usage of MacBooks is considered a big deal. Many of us work on software that is designed to to run on multiple platforms. A MacBook is the most convenient way to run all operating systems we've to support.

    Besides, when I joined five years ago my manager had the cool Apple "Think Different" poster in her office. We may not have always had the broad cross platform offering we have today, but it's certainly not new that we've a quite diverse use of technology and software at Microsoft.

    @terrajobst:

    Usage of MacBooks is not a big deal. MS is just old and not aggressive anymore.

    there's no need to make windows phones better than iphones, no need to make windows ecosystems better than Apple's, just make Apple's ecosystem better is good enough for ms.
