Mac have had a very long time to try to win back the market. They haven't
managed it so it is very likly they never would have done. I don't know why
they haven't, it's certainly a pretty machine, and you would have thought
that at the height of the virus/hacking wars the Mac would have been very
attractive. But for some reason it wasn't.

So Linux isn't stealing from Mac, Mac couldn't get in anyway.

I still fancy the Big Mac server, I have no idea if it is any good, but it's
in a huge heavy box and has a massive fan on the front that could dice your
arm off no trouble, and the real magic, it sounds like a jet plane when
it's just idling before take off. That sound can't be an accident, they
must have designed it in.
