From the article:

Next, Apple's newest version of OS X, called Panther -- which is scheduled to debut later this year -- will let corporations run Windows applications on their Macs. That's a major plus, considering that nearly all companies use Windows.

Huh?

Yeah it certainly surprised me. I had a little think about it, and the only logical explanation I could come up with was something in Panther server that lets you "remote desktop" into a Windows server on the same network or something. I didn't see this as very likely though, since we haven't heard any rumours about it :)
