Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Apple is already gearing up for a major marketing campaign for the holidays, and if they're able to ramp up demand, and then deliver the system when they say it will be delivered, it could trump Microsoft in a way that Apple's CEO Steve Jobs would crow about for years.

This has turn, of course, into a "Why people love Windows (PC's) versus OSX (Macs).

I use both, and like the Mac better and I was a Windows (PC) user for 95% of my life. But this doesn't come down at this point to what anyone likes.

It comes down to Microsoft owning the majority of the market and it would be practicaly impossible for any competitors to put a large dent into their market share.

For the majority of the large businesses, it would take such an monumental effort to change all that. I know that some of you would say that you can now run Windows on a Mac in various ways, and I appreciate that, but to make this kind of change inside a large organization would be quite an undertaking (not impossible but not easy)

I believe the only visible dent, would be at the home user level, but it would still be a very small dent.

Sadly enough, even there was the "perfect hardware" and "OS" out there, to put a dent into Microsoft's market would take years.
