Apple A new report out by market research firm Forrester suggests that Apple could double its market share through defections from the Windows platform alone. The firm said that much of this has to do with customers' deep distrust of Microsoft. Apple, along with TiVo, was the only company whose brand trust increased in the last two years. Consumers trust technology brands like Bose, Dell, Sony, Panasonic, and Hewlett-Packard the most, while Toshiba, Hitachi, Gateway, and LG joined Microsoft at the bottom.

I have already switched. And being able to run my legacy software on a Mac using boot camp is a great bonus. Anyway, the article says consumers trust... Sony?? After the rootkit scandal they still trust Sony?? Geez...

Most Sony customers don't know what a rootkit is. Folks here need to keep in mind that (not trying to inflate your ego now...) you are not a typical customer.

Not only do they not know what it is, but they probably have never heard of it.
