Is this the end of the Mac enterprise?

Mac sales haven’t just dropped in the past couple years, they have fallen dramatically faster than the PC market as a whole.

Macs are not the most popular computers in the enterprise office either.  Yes people love their MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros, but with the price tag so high, CIOs pass on purchasing them for the office. 
High-tech offices love Macs, thanks to the Adobe Creative Suite/Creative Cloud, but Apple lacks security updates for older versions of the Mac OS X.

Apple just announced that Mac OS X 10.9, Mavericks has fixed many security bugs for the older versions.

Apple stopped releasing their security flaws for older operating systems because with a rise in zero day attacks were prevailing itself.

The tall tale of the Mac having no security issues is exposed: ever hear of the Flashback Trojan, Icefog, or Backdoor:OSX/KitM.A?  These are all successful Mac malware programs.  If you are using a Mac, you should download Mavericks today!

Mavericks is a free software, it may take a couple hours to download the multi-Gigabyte to update and install but its worth it!

For those still using OS X Mountain Lion, you know there’s no more security updates, right?
