Apple By most counts, they're a hit. But they were intended to woo new users to the fold, yet Mac market share has only budged -- lower, says BusinessWeek.

Alienation is the problem.

Sure Apple gained respect from the IT market by switching to UNIX. But switching to UNIX, even easy to use UNIX, might not have been the best thing for its existing user base of loyal non technical users. The problem is that Apple products aren't really targeted at the IT user base. So our new opinions of apple, although a 10 fold improvement, don’t really mean shit for apple’s market share.
