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.

I guess the fact that more and more applications are web-based helps a lot in that regard.

Also, dropping some Microsoft solutions in favor of web-based ones might save a lot of licensing cost over the long run.

This isn't a problem unique to Mac OS. Similar problems are holding Linux back as well.
