In the News Interesting charts by Horace Dediu: "As a result the Mac began to whittle down the advantage Windows had. The ratio of Windows to Mac units shipped fell to below 20, a level that was last reached before Windows 95 launched. It's as if the Mac reversed the Windows advantage. This was an amazing turnaround for the Mac. But the story does not end there." Too bad Dediu didn't include Android devices in his charts. The picture would change dramatically, and would downplay the important of either Windows or Mac/iOS. We're in a three-horse race - not the two-horse race Dediu paints.

The most ardent Windows-fans are nowadays older IT managers in large organizations. They grew up with Microsoft and they believe that users are not willing to use a different OS. Even though a lot of these users (minus the mentioned older IT managers) use iPads and Android devices at home ;)

Actually there are a huge amount of people that think Windows 7 kicks arse that aren't older IT managers.
