Unless it's talking about graphics design companies (can someone remind me why Macs are better at this?).

MAC's aren't better then pcs for graphics uses these days. maybe at one time they had the edge, but not now

I have seen more Apple systems in the corporate world recently mainly Macbook Air but even here the number that are actually running windows is surprisingly high. Apple do make good high end hardware but people still need to integrate with the existing infrastructure - which of course is windows based

Also the article is misleading a 200% increase on a share of virtually nothing is virtually nothing.

Meh - "Growth Percentage" stories are basically worthless. And this one, like nearly all, doesn't provide any perspective on where the players were to begin with. So it's impossible to make any judgement (good or bad) on whether the change is significant or not. And there's also nothing regarding what type of usage - I would presume Laptops and 'client' computers to do regular office tasks. But the article says nothing about where anyone was to begin with, so it's impossible to quantify.

I'll pull some made up some numbers out of thin air to serve as an example of what I am talking about here:

If Intel gains another 1% of the market, and they have 60% to begin with. Then everyone snores. It's not news. And I'm pretty sure we can all agree the gain is insignificant.

Now - If Apple gains 1% market share, but they had only had 1% to begin with: Then yeah, they have '..explosive 100% growth...'... But in terms of the overall market share and units sold that gain is still totally insignificant.

I was thinking that maybe they finally sold their second enterprise system which would give them a 100% growth.

That's exactly correct. Trust me, Apple knows they aren't in the enterprise market.

200% of 10 is 20. Thats hardly earth shattering

Reminds me of the articles you see from time to time trumpeting that Mac sales are up 75%, or 60%, or some large percent. The tone of the article makes you think "oh woe, surely this is the end of Windows". Then you look up the actual figures and see that that "huge" increase only amounts to like 0.001% additional market share...
