Just when Apple Computer Corp thought things couldn’t look much worse – analysts are predicting the company will report losses of up to $150m for the first quarter (CI No 3,072) – Nissan Motors announced it is dumping its 3,500 Apple Macintoshes in favor of Windows personal computers. The Sunday morning edition of Japan’s Mainichi Shimbun carried the news that the company is planning to switch its 8,000 computers from a mixture of personal computers and Macintoshes to just Windows based systems. Nissan told the newspaper that Windows has now become the world standard operating system for business use and its decision was based on this. Nissan is also apparently planning a new in-house network which will benefit from a homogeneous environment. The change will become effective immediately and cover all new computer purchases from now on, the paper added.
