IBM Employees Using Macs – Hell gets a little chilly…

IBM Employees To Use Macs

DA013264-0202-4BCC-A547-DDF8D1699EE9.jpgIBM has just launched an internal pilot program that will see its employees move onto the Mac platform – which is pretty funny if you ask me. The first phase of the pilot program has started since October 2007 till January 2008, where two dozen MacBook Pros were distributed to researchers at different sites in IBM’s research division. It seems as though one of the main reasons of this paradigm shift is due to the fact that Macs are less prone to security issues, while many new IBM employees are also more comfortable with the Mac as compared to their own ThinkPads. Guess this is somewhat akin to a BMW engineer driving a Mercedes instead.
