Jaguar: Time to Stop Pussyfooting Around
Subject:   What is causing the "Switch"...
Date:   2002-08-03 18:08:56
OS 9 user's may not care for some of the changes in OS X, but I can tell you from personal experience that OS X is the reason people are switching to the Mac from Windows. I know half a dozen Windows people who have bought new Macs and trashed their Wintel boxes and it wasn't the pretty color of the machines that sold them. I also know of one gov't space research facility that is replacing some Sun servers with the new Xserve. This never would have happened without OS X.

    My personal observations are consistent with your comment. Most of the people I know who have moved to Mac OS X lately have come from Windows, not earlier versions of Mac OS.

    So what's going on here? As you can tell from these talkbacks many traditional Mac users are really quite upset over the whole Mac OS X thing, yet new users from Windows seem to be having a pretty good time.
