RUMOR: Salesforce.com dumping Windows PCs, moving all 4000+ employees to Apple Macs

“Apple’s about to have a new big enterprise shop to add to its evangelism of the value of switching from Windows — no less than the 4000-odd employees of Salesforce.com,” Alex Curylo, iPhone Programmer, reports on his blog, “Under The Bridge.”

Curylo’s “proverbial Impeccable Source™” tells him:

Salesforce.com is giving Macs to all employees. Yup, all 4000 of us; we are going to be one of the largest enterprise software Mac shops around. As the leases come up for the Dells, IT is replacing with Macs.

And why, you ask, Security! The resources it takes to defend against all the stuff the baddies throw at a PC, it’s just cheaper/easier to pay a few bucks more for a Mac and not have any of those issues.

With the Google Apps integration, and moving to the Mac, we will be free of the clutches of the Redmond Beast!

  1. I hope this is true, because MS is gunning for SalesForce.com market. MS is undercutting the price of their product from what I’ve read. MS can afford it and you know why. Just like they can keep selling Zunes while losing money.

    By the way TROLLS, how many Zune were sold the quarter. Post the numbers and back it up with a link.

  2. 670 – 698 – the multi-acre warehouse used to store Ballmer’s millions of pounds of raw meat, a mind-boggling stash of billions of Hostess Ding Dongs and thousands of chair remnants. It’s staffed by Windows security developers and funded secretly by the MS R & D budget.

    “I wonder if the iPhone had anything to do with their rumored migration? I bet that during testing of their iPhone apps they wondered if the Mac was this easy. They bought a few for the coders and engineers and voila, they were like, “We gotta get Macs!”

    I think you are right on with this comment
