The most talked about new feature in Mac OS X Snow Leopard, which debuted on August 28, is its native integration with Microsoft Exchange. The assumption was that this one feature could have the same kind of impact in opening the Mac market to corporate users as Exchange integration had on bringing the iPhone to business professionals. A new survey of TechRepublic’s CIO Jury completely debunks that assumption.
On September 1, TechRepublic polled its 90-member panel of U.S. IT executives and asked, “Does the release of Snow Leopard make your IT department more likely to adopt more Mac OS X machines?” The jury, made up of the first 12 respondents, unanimously voted “no” in a 12-0 decision.
