4D Developers and Their Love of Macs

One of the striking things at 4D Summit this year was to look around and see the number of people using Mac laptops. The conference rooms looked like a sea of aluminum Macs - both PowerBook G4s and MacBook Pros. The only question was 15" or 17"...

The preference for Macs could be seen in our web stats...

Use of Safari and Firefox go up when the topic is 4D

Take a look at the stats from our site for the two days that when we had the most people coming to read about 4D Summit, and compare that to the 2 days prior. The percentage of Safari users went up more than 10 fold, and Firefox usage went up as well.

These days with Parallels MacBook Pros do make a lot of sense for 4D programmers. But it's still a bit amazing...

It's not just 4D developers, it's a trend in the overall techie community as well. When I was at WordCamp this summer there were Macs everywhere. I was a little embarrassed to be toting my Dell.
