VMware VP of Marketing Erik Frieberg reports on the results of a survey they commissioned of 376 IT professionals:
Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the results is that Windows is no longer the platform of choice in the enterprise with users overwhelmingly preferring Macs. User preference is the top reason given by IT administrators as to why their organization supports Macs with 73 percent of IT administrators identifying it as the main driver.
It’s not a huge sample and while 66 percent of the businesses surveyed said they already use Macs, they certainly don’t support them across departments. Still, I don’t doubt things are changing. You know, now that I’ve left corporate IT. Typical, really.
