I'm actually the lone mac support in a large organisation. I would never give up my mac but the company uses PeeCees and I need to support that world as well. So I need to find the best solution for support without making it too obvious that I'm terribly biased. How many times have I said "get a mac" but I also get the same version for PC as well. It's funny how the latest and greatest isn't always the best solution as evidenced by Retrospect for PC. I think the Mac version is actually a good product.
