Really Apple needs to work on securing its traditional areas of dominance--education and graphics. Right now, Windows is killing them in terms of music, which is just wrong--creative folks should use Apples, dammit! Windows excels because of its dominance in business. This have leveraged it into schools (most law schools don't even support Macs anymore!). If people use a Windows box at work, they probably want the same setup at home and want to learn on it in school (as we all know, schools in the U.S. do not teach theory but are training camps for the business world now). Sorry, I am bitter. Education is now a Microsoft bastion and Apple needs to regain schools and creative areas before it can expect real converts. If they can start getting more corporate support for Macs (the big reason I may need to get a Windows box now is that at law school, many now have software that must be run to submit tests and this will not run in emulation as it is an anti-cheating measure). Now, if Apple could reduce the number of such products, it would fare far better. Here's to 10% market share in 2 years Apple!
