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. The data from Apple's previous fiscal quarter was highlighted on Friday by analyst Charlie Wolf with Needham & Company. He said though he originally viewed success in the enterprise as a "one-quarter blip," it now appears to be a "durable platform" for Apple.

Is there some written licensing rules that forbid use of the free Visual Studio Express tools for professional development ? They don't sound so crippled compared to "sell your arm" professional editions.

Nope, but the express edition is crippled though. No openmp, no profile guided optimization and no link time optimization (perhaps there are more features removed but these are the ones I know of).

This crippling is to MS's detrement. We write high performance multi threaded software on linux and compile for windows using the express compiler. We don't want visual studio. Any performance hit on their platform is on their heads. That and almost all of our customers run the software on linux anyways. There's a couple of stubborn ones who have more money than sense.
