Apple Mac sales in the enterprise during Apple's last fiscal quarter grew a whopping 66 percent, significantly outpacing the rest of the PC market, which grew just 4.5 percent in the enterprise. The data from Apple's previous fiscal quarter was highlighted on Friday by analyst Charlie Wolf with Needham & Company. He said though he originally viewed success in the enterprise as a "one-quarter blip," it now appears to be a "durable platform" for Apple.

Yes, but in most organizations in standard roles, management wants to limit what a user can do. This to avoid maintenance nightmare. Many companies where there in the 90ies when Windows did not provide so much maintenance functionality. OS X is, in this respect in the position of Windows in the 90ies. Of course, on company laptops, or as developer machines, OS X works fine (outside some compatibility problems).
