In America... In America many things are big. Even mistakes. There is a lot of user friendly linux distributions that can be used by unexperienced users.
Mac Os is usually used in profesional DTP, and by some artists. Peoples in Apple know what that users want. And that is why apple computers are for "elite".

Linux is best solution when u had small budget. Just the cost of windows licences can be too big.
And at last linux can work on older machines.
Business is moving slowly... Yes, imagine that big enterprices had a lot of computers with windows. Usual worker know how to use it. Cost of change os in company can be very big.
In many new companies they use linux.
