Without it, according to Kawasaki, Apple would have been dead in the water. I remember when the owner of the limousine company I was working for came in with his Macintosh, and that is exactly what he used it for...well that and some bookkeeping whenever we could pry the keyboard out of his hands. There really wasn't much out there for the Mac in those days, especially on the business end of things but it certainly was embraced by the ad-centric and publishing software companies. I used to hear it all the time, business work needs a Windows machine and artists need a Mac. My how times have changed, or have they? </p>
