This is becoming a scary trend. Microsoft apologist Rob Enderle gets so much wrong so often that when he finally praises Apple I know something is going very wrong.
At the beginning of the PC revolution around 1984, PCs were focused on individuals… Shortly thereafter, Apple created the Lisa computer, which was targeted at the enterprise market. It failed spectacularly, while the Mac actually did rather well in business for the next five years…
Interesting, except it’s all wrong. Come on, Rob, tell us. Is the enterprise ready for Apple’s Snow Leopard Macs?
I think we are in the forefront of an adjustment where users take back some power and begin to define their solutions again. Changes like this seldom benefit the entrenched vendor, and Apple appears unusually well positioned to take advantage of the situation.
