BLOG: North Korea switched from Windows to OS X -- should you?

Galen Gruman | Feb. 13, 2014
As the PC market wavers, the Mac may dominate it despite poor Microsoft apps

You may use some apps that have no Mac version (such as Microsoft Access) or have a poor Mac version (Intuit's QuickBooks, for example). If you really need them and there's no good substitute, you always have the desktop vrtualization option.

Has North Korea recognized a seminal shift under way in the PC market? I think so. But the scope of that shift may not be huge, if most people decide to run their current Windows as is and invest their new technology dollars and learning into mobile devices instead. Macs may become a larger piece of the shrinking PC pie, but the real action may reside elsewhere.
