Enterprise Desktop Alliance…surveyed 322 IT admins about their Mac-PC environment….The key finding is that 66 percent of respondents said they expect to see more Macs at their companies. This figure is slightly down from last year’s survey, which showed that 74 percent of respondents had planned to increase the number of Macs.
