So many former Mac haters have come around in recent years that I’ve lost count. Now even Forrester is advising IT departments to open up to the Mac, acknowledging that Mac users are more productive than their Windows-using coworkers. My guess? The guys at Forrester finally used a Mac, and were only then inspired to give the platform a fare shake in their analysis.
Someone once said that the typical IT pundit’s definition of an Apple fanatic is “anyone who liked the Mac before I did”. It’s more evidence that people form their opinions first, and find justifications for them later.
