A nice article:

Surely the brightest spot in this dull economy is Apple Computer. After years of pumping out great-looking niche machines, Apple took the chance that the general market would go for a Unix box if it was done properly.

Apple picked the worst possible time to take the biggest risk imaginable. Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server are unqualified hits on everything from $999 notebooks through entry servers. Developers are climbing onto the platform in droves, as well they should. I can't say it emphatically enough: Apple is a serious player in the broad IT market now. As did the other success stories of this recession, Apple got there by turning to its customers instead of putting the squeeze on them when times got tough.

Nice to hear praise for Apple from impartial sources. :)

I remember reading the letters to the editor in InfoWorld proclaiming that the newspaper was full of Apple Lovers. :) I think they were just Windows users...the letters were all in CAPS. :D
