There's an interesting poll on Arstechnica at the moment (I think the correct URL is http://arstechnica.com/forum/sympoll/index.php?dispid=5), asking what users think of Apple's announcements. Considering the poll is relatively large (over 20,000 at time of writing), the numbers are quite interesting. 21% are already Mac users. 4% have switched from Unix and Windows. 2% are going to switch from Unix and Windows soon. 7% are considering switching from Unix and Windows. 24% found the Mac compelling, but too expensive. That's 13% (roughly 1 in 7) who have switched or about to; or a whopping 37% who are favourable to the Mac (with the price being the main obstacle). And remember, if one excludes the Mac users from this poll, the percentages are even more impressive. If these demographics are true of the PC market as a whole, it's a very positive sign for Apple.
