The audio company, which I was a partner in, was Magnum Opus, which we sold to JBL in 1982.
You can find the information I posted from Info World, or ComputerWorld if you bothered. Industry publications are always much better for this than enthusiast web sites, and your own desires.
We have discussed these matters several times here over time. What I said is well understood.
Apple has little interest in going into the large corporate market They've said so publicly several times. Starting with Job's remark that "The enterprise is not our customer".
It's known by Apple's marketing and focus, that the market for their servers is in a vertical application, that is, companies, schools, and government agencies that already use their machines for Apple's traditional purposes. They would be interested in using their servers as well.
This is not to say that there aren't some companies out of those areas of focus that would not use their machines.
But, surveys published in the two journals I mentioned show that there is little interest in the larger corporate world for Apple equipment. I'm not thrilled about that, but it's the truth. You can look it up.
