I'm still miffed as to why most people don't use OSX. I made a similar post on my blog last week with slightly differing stats.

Hey, it's their loss, not ours! =) Hopefully more end-users will eventually catch on, but unfortunately, most IT people certainly won't:

This quote sums it up: "If you recommend purchasing a computer that requires only half the support of the machine it is replacing, aren't you putting your job in danger?"

This Daring Fireball article mentions IT reluctance to adopt standard email technology, among other things.

We shouldn't get to cocky about this. Apple has issued many MacOS X security updates that patch vulnerabilities in the unix code and applications.

I'd be prepared to bet that many end users choose not to apply these patches and that one day a unix style virus or worm will exploit one of them.

After all, applying a patch is risky.
