“I think Microsoft has recognized over the last couple years that maybe the creative community isn’t as locked into the Mac as many people think it is,” said Jan Dawson, an independent technology analyst. “There’s this window of opportunity for Surface to get in there — and even if that window closes with some of Apple’s upcoming devices, I don’t think Apple has that market locked up.”
I agree that the creative community is willing to move on from Mac, but I think/hope many will give Linux a long, hard look. It’s fast. It’s easy. And the price point is pretty sweet. And hardware becomes much less important when the operating system isn’t bogging things down.
