I'm no Mac zealot trying to convince everyone to switch to Mac or anything, I'm just a Windows support person who now has to look after a lab of Mac computers, and since this site is the source for help regarding application deployments, it would be logical to have a Mac section here as well. What do you think?

Any one else out there interested? I hate to have another quiet forum, but if there is interest consider it done. Anyone?

This is one of those that will initially be probably quite dead but it might be of value long term to add for what I am seeing in the market. I see some major firms trying to see if the Macintosh platform is a viable alternative to the PC platform for some niche implementations outside of just a graphic artist workstation. I think it is still a little early to see how well these POCs will go but there are people testing the waters and there are is a bit of a comeback for Macintosh in the corporate arena in the graphic arts department.

At MMS I got a taste of vendors having product offerings to extend SMS to unix platforms from EXC Software and Quest. Quest seems to have some specific OS X targeting in their marketing so I think that people see a potential market here. At this point I think adding a forum could be a but of a gamble but I would at the very least keep my eye on this.

My handle not withstanding, I'd like to see more Mac traffic here.

Having said that, check out this BuisnessWeek cover story: The Mac in the Gray Flannel Suit: http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/08_19/b4083036428429.htm

I'd love to offer it if there is a desire-- actually that is one of the very things I'm trying to determine with the survey I just posted:


Hopefully the fact that this thread is over a year old since you resurrected it doesn't mean there are only two of you interested!

  • I would be interested!!! (I have an imac 27" 2010 model)
    • Since we moved to a tag based system, we can now grow to cover any subjects desired and Mac is getting some traction: http://www.itninja.com/tag/supporting-mac
