If only that were true in the workplace. I still bring in my MacBook if a critical deadline looms. It hasn't let me down yet.
In response to the articles, keep in mind that the majority of users really don't care. We just want products that actually work.
Sure, there are limitations on my MacBook and iPhone. But they work as advertised.
I don't have to have a degree and a few certs to keep them working. I don't need consultants and hour of maintenance to keep them working. They just work.
Similarly, Linux just works. Which is why I run it on my desktop. It gives me some flexibility that you don't get with commercial software. And I don't have to worry about it. Wake it up, do what I want, put it to sleep. I don't have to spend any time rebooting or diagnosing it. It simply works.
As long as Apple makes reliable products with competent software, they'll be fine.
