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.

While it is true that PCs tend to be on the cheaper side, if you are developing with C and C++ then actually Macs are cheaper then a PC + MSDN license.

But if you are mainly coding in Java, .Net, Ruby, Python, etc, then the price of the included developer tools does not count that much.

Is there some written licensing rules that forbid use of the free Visual Studio Express tools for professional development ? They don't sound so crippled compared to "sell your arm" professional editions.
