The Omni link provided above is their own test for their super high-tech audience. So one can expect their user base as early adopters.
I suspect your data mining efforts suck.
One thing can be agreed on - Mac OSX user base is fractured.
You can't be serious! OS adoption is no different on a Mac than any other platform.
Snow Leopard is starving for drivers and performance. So production environments haven't migrated.
Total BS. Snow Leopard generally performed much better than Leopard. Further SL immediately fixed some serious issues within Leopard. All in all SL was a very welcomed upgrade.
Lion pretty much requires people to run out and buy all new peripherals. So adoption will be slow in certain industry segments - if at all.
Where in hell did this thought come from? I installed Lion and had zero issues with anything connected to my Mac. Frankly it is beginning to sound like you are trolling.
There is no clear road-map for OSX like there is for iOS.
SJ giving the middle finger to professionals hasn't sat well with the market either.
The casual consumer market is exploding thou.
More baseless crap! If you want to know where Lion is going attend WWDC. There is no magic here.
Here is hoping that Cookie doesn't have the same disdain for industry that SJ had.
I don't mean to be cruel but you either are trolling on purpose or are a complete idiot. Steve isn't in the business of sucking on business to gain sales. Rather APLE builds high quality solutions that people either see value in or they don't.
Frankly I think business, especially big business is waking up to the fact that they have been poorly managing their technical an IT needs by falling for the like of RIM, Nokia, Dell and others that go out of their way to "manage" relationships. Note these managed relationships seldom benefit the business but rather tie the business to unstable partners with little vision beyond servicing the customer.
So Apple comes along with something like iPhone and business wakes up and say crap our policies have put us into a hole. It is no surprise that RIM is suffering now because the old ways of doing things is not flexible and responsive enough in today's world. I suspect it will be a very long time before business falls for the marketing practices of old.
