Those numbers are great news for us Mac users.

Point of order, I've seen that "all time high" headline here and there, but as far as I know that is just not true. In the early 90's the Mac had a marketshare around 11 or 12 percent.

Here's a site that agrees with my long-term memory:

timster,

I seem to recall seeing numbers around 10% as well. I believe they are referring to their internal stats as a record number.

Yes, I have not had a problem finding software in years. The last big problem was Quickbooks not offering a Mac flavor, then there was the problem with Mac Quickbooks not working with Windows--unless you put the extension on it (!). Now--no problems.
