Re: webcasting

iMAC crowd?  A station has to appeal to more than Mac users to survive.  iMAC 
may have been the best selling computer in April but that is a bogus figure 
when you consider that there is one iMAC competing with dozens of machines 
running the Microsoft Windows Operating System.  The last time I saw 
statistics, MACs were in single digits and dropping as a percentage of 
computer users.

I'm not trying to start a debate about the merits of the different systems, 
but MAC is strictly a product for a niche market and some specialty users 
like publishing and schools were they have a significant market share.  (By 
the way, I don't understand why our schools would teach kids on a system that 
they are not likely to encounter in the work place.)
