Mac Gains on Windows

Windows lost nearly a full percentage point of market share for the second month in a row in December, pushing Microsoft Corp.'s operating system to a new low, an Internet measurement company reported yesterday.

i'm sure the popularity of the iPod is helping this.
it made Apple a household name.

People Like me Buy a Mac for Logic Pro.

As a console or PC is for Gaming, for me a Mac Is For Music.

MAC has pretty positive image these days, their new operating system seems really great and has plenty of neat functions that even i have installed for my Linux Ubuntu ( Launch bar + 4 x workspaces = epic win).

Mac OS X seems like really innovative os, with loads of cool built in features.
It probably tells a lot that most of Vistas features where actually taken from os x, (don't believe me? http://www.youtube.com/watc... ).
Probably not so good choice for gamer but for those who want their jobs done its seems like a great option.

I am a bit more of a Linux supporter myself, Mac seems(note: seems) rather "closed" operating system (fact that has its pros and cons)
I like to feel that I have complete control over my workspace and applications.
Gotta check Mac out someday, as a student the amount we can spend cash is rather limited.

However I am very happy to see that MAC is doing well and brining some heat to Microsoft. More competition is never a bad thing.
