70% of college freshmen are taking a Mac to school

John Moe Aug 5, 2010

This is one report from an analyst who recently downgraded Microsoft stock but is a pretty amazing number if true.  The number is up 10% from a year ago. The analyst, Trip Chowdhry, says that Microsoft has not been able to connect with the younger generation of users (ahem KIN! ahem) and could be in even more trouble when this Mac generation graduates and goes in to the work force without being native on Windows.

Here’s a thought, Microsoft: scrap the Windows name and replace it with Xbox. Xbox Word, Xbox Excel, Xbox Outlook. You’re welcome.
