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.

RE: market share

I hate how people use the BMW/Ford arguement to compare Apples to PC's. The flaw in that arguement is that both Ford and BMW both run on gasoline you can buy at any gas station and both can drive on the same roads. The problem I'm worried about with Apple is what if market share dips down to far? Say good bye to the developers who won't want to waste time developing software for a platform that has no market share. What if Adobe or other large software companies decide Apples market share is to small to cater to?

On a brighter note, I should be recieving my 1ghz g4 ibook today. I can't wait, this is my first Mac. I mainly use linux but after using a Mac for a while at an Apple store, I had to have one.
Yum, unix.
