I don't think you know how business work.  Generallly business are very cautious.  Switching to IOS / OSX world would take years.

Never mind actually getting people to switch to some other Office suite when what the majority of people use is already available.  Hasn't exactly panned out well in the past for the competition, never mind a lot of people familar with what IBM's offered in the past isn't exactly excited with their offerings.  Lotus Notes alone gives me a nosebleed just thinking about it.

yeah, and even in the Education sector, we saw that push for everyone with an iPad and all that stuff, now a few years later I am noticing a lot of those pro iPad school districts and colleges moving away from that model... after they learned the hard way, the enterprise class services and control isn't there... Microsoft has that pretty much nailed down, Apple, not so much

This will amount to a whole load of people buying iPads, them being used for a couple of weeks, then being a toy thats abandoned before switching back to a computer. The Telco I work for tried to integrate iPads for some reason and it was a flat out disaster
