I just saw this, and I certainly had not heard of it. InfoWorld’s CTO just moved to Mac OS X! It’s all the more interesting because he had previously written articles about how Macs weren’t very good.

Main take home: The Mac lets him do the same thing as a Windows computer and a Linux server. Interestingly enough, that’s the same conclusion that I’ve come to. The Mac is offering a really interesting niche to the technological elite.

(If you get a Mac, be sure to get AppleCare. They just treat you so much better.)
