Penguins, Tigers, and Leopards, oh my!

I've taken notice of the number of Macs at this year's LotusSphere conference. Lots of IBM'ers now have them as well as customers and partners. Several presenters were switching between their Mac desktop and their Windoze virtual machines. Another nicety is the strong presence of Canonical and Ubuntu here. There is such an irony in that the company that created the PC, no longer manufactures it, but embraces most of the major platforms (Solaris desktop being an exception). The support of Lotus Notes on Ubuntu is not as popular as the support of Notes on the Mac, but it is well received nonetheless. Lenovo's Thinkpad is still King here, but its marketshare is certainly less than it has been.
