Salesforce.com Switching to Mac?

Salesforce.com Switching to Mac?Salesforce.com, a huge corporation that develops CRM software may be making the switch from PC to Mac in the near future. Salesforce is currently signed up in an agreement with Dell, but as their licenses expire, their IT department is apparently planning for a switch over to Mac. Reasons for the switch are hazy, but one major factor is said to be security. Salesforce would rather pay the extra expense up front to purchase Mac systems, instead of paying insane costs to safeguard all of their Windows systems.

Salesforce is somewhat buddy/buddy with Apple already. They were on-board with Apple from the start with iPhone, and were even brought on stage at the iPhone SDK event some time back.
