I hardly think you assessment that the Mac presence outside the USA is meaningless is accurate.


Worldwide Mac market share is less than 5%.

Sure. But it's only about 10% in the U.S. Relatively speaking, compared to PCs, Macs still have a very small market share even in the U.S.

Horse crap. You don't get to a 50 Million+ install base for Snow Leopard alone and have < 5%. Next you're going to say the 200 million install base of iOS is < 5% of the Embedded Systems market and you'll do so by citing every POS phone that has an embedded CPU in it to justify your number.

Go and look up the worldwide figures for Mac market share by ANY of the proper venues. They all cite ~5%.
