I'd guess it is somewhat of a US thing. I recently got back to
Europe after living there, and the penetration of Apple laptops is
way higher in the USA than it is here. Here it mostly seems to be
trendy kids and "design" people, whereas in the USA it seemed to be
90%+ of everybody, if you took cafes to be representative (which of
course they aren't). You can do development on a Mac, it just must
be very annoying (not to even mention freedom issues). Boggles my
mind that people would put up with it, but apparently lots do.
