I have to admit, I make a paycheck solving problems in the Windows eco-system. I think a lot of us do, and if that environment started working really well a lot of us would find ourselves in the redundant category. So I am content with WinTel being a crappy world in need of my expertise.

However, when I need a laptop for personal business, I am reaching for a MacBook. When I stream TV it is a browser running on a Mac Mini. A half dozen Apple computers have wiggled their way in to my daily usage through no intention of my own, it just happened.

Apple is down 2-3% when the WinTel world is down 20-30%. There is more to that story than an updated product line. Are users finally giving the bird to Microsoft & their advertising platform operating system?
