And the important thing to Apple is those few "Creative professionals" end up numbering in the tens of thousands if not hundred of thousands of buyers.

Suddenly you are talking hundreds of millions of dollars in sales with a very healthy profit margin to boot

And with Apple buying exclusivity into the applications these creative professionals use (Logic being one such example), it seems pretty clear that Apple are going to dominate this side of the market (where as Windows is getting increasingly awkward with creative software what with DRMs and removal of ASIO layers)

Slightly off topic I know, but maybe Linux will use this chance to overtake Windows on the PC side of creative, profession design. Rosegarden is gaining in popularity and JACK is reportedly better than ASIO)
