Japanese Bank Moves to Mac

A Japanese bank is doing something that few large companies have done for many years: Aozora Bank Ltd. is replacing some 90% of its 2,300 personal computers with Macs. The Wall Street Journal reported (subscription required) Monday that the bank already has a third of its computers sporting the Apple logo, and plans on having 90% of all of its systems replaced with Macs within a few months.

Bill Chute, Aozorais chief technology officer, told the Journal that his company was making the transition to Macs because of Mac OS Xis stability, functionality, and the recent move to Intel processors.

Before OS X, he told the paper, "it would have been impossible."

The full article at the Journal goes into great depth concerning Appleis history in the enterprise space, and recent developments in this market.
