    I am a graphic designer at a local video production company that is 100% Windows based. We are a small company of less then 30 employees.

    Except for me, and a few others, most of my co-workers are very anti-Macintosh. We have 12 edit suites all using Adobe Premier or DPS Velocity running Windows XP. I myself am forced to use Photoshop on a XP Windows box. This can’t be very common. Just wondering, am I in the Twilight Zone or what? :confused:

    Nope. I work with several other companies in my area who are either completely or 95%+ Windows.

    Print shops IMO are the heavily converted world. The video/ photography world is still pretty well split up.

    I have an engineering company of about 30 people. 95% Mac OSX. No problems at all.

    I guess my question would be so what? Is your company profitable? are you able to get your job done? are your products well recieved? I don't think your customers care on what system its created on, and i would probably say, unless you have maxed out both software and specs, the rest is just preference.

    Yeah, microsoft didn't care that their "get a pc" commercials were made on mac's, and that that company only uses mac's.

    I think they cared about the price they paid for a service they wanted. From my point of view, the add's were very effective thus they did the job, and they still enjoy 90% market share.

    Not really. Usually it's just people that don't do their research (AKA, listens to bloated IT department / biased IT guy).

    How Macs cut costs:

    Philadelphia International Airport uses Macs to reduce cost

    Sounds like if they want good work, they need to go to Mac based company. ;)
