Interesting. Depends how they define success. Will Apple gain significant market share in the corp. world within the next 5 years? Maybe, maybe not. I think their success in the enterprise market will mirror what goes on in the consumer market. If in the next 5 years Apple can break above 10% market share, then you'll start to see companies buying Apple. Also, as I mentioned in another post, I think Apple's success on the corporate desktop will mirror the success of Linux on back-office servers, especially at tech companies. Engineers and scientists that work with Linux/Unix servers anyway will be attracted to an easy-to-use Unix machine that can also run MS Office apps.
