Mac OS X OS X is more appealing to enterprises as a desktop operating system than ever before and although it is unlikely to take market share away from Windows, the Mac could reduce the number of Linux-based desktops, according to research group Gartner. In a report published by Gartner this week titled Enterprise Mac Clients Remain Limited, but Apple's Appeal is Growing, analysts Michael Silver, Neil MacDonald, Ray Wagner and Brian Prentice, said that administrators will most likely have to prepare for more Mac systems in their environment even though OS X is "not a suitable enterprise wide platform". Ars weighs in on the issue as well.

You put it better than I could - that was my experience, too, and so I prefer to brave the difficulties of Linux; at least there people are glad, and help, if someone tries to understand a bit -
quite unlike the proprietary world, where you have to be happy with the few crumbs the software firms decide to feed you.
