The Macintosh computer was first introduced in 1984 and what a journey it has been for this iconic line of personal computers. When the Mac debuted, it introduced an intuitive point-and-click user interface with drop-down menus. Today, the MacBook Air is widely recognized for its long battery life and slick design and the new Mac Pro desktop may be the fastest personal computer in the market.
Today, the popularity of MacBook laptops is evident from the widespread adoption of these iconic computing devices by both consumers and professionals in every walks of life.
In the next chapter of the Mac story, client virtualization on the Mac can play a crucial role in increasing adoption of Macs in enterprises by allowing BYO and corporate-issued Macs to run corporate Windows apps to help enhance user productivity. The introduction of DesktopPlayer for Mac in 2014 marks a new milestone for what hopefully will be a more innovative and interesting usage of Mac computers in the enterprise. DesktopPlayer for Mac makes it easy for enterprises to adopt and support BYO Mac users who want to use their personal Macs for work while retaining their own personal data and apps on the same personal computer. With DesktopPlayer, Mac users can flexibly leverage the power of the Mac laptop and make work and play seamless, irrespective of network connection.
Personally, the first Mac I bought was the Macintosh LC that was introduced in 1990. I can still remember this computer vividly in my mind and I remember how it shaped my perspective on how computing should be and how it can be better. Share some of your earlier experiences with the Mac and where you think the Mac will go in the enterprise.
Here’s a toast to the Mac!
