Macs cost notably less to support than Windows PCs

A majority of respondents said that Macs cost less in terms of time spent troubleshooting, user training, help desk calls, and system configuration. Admins generally agreed that costs related to software licensing and supporting infrastructure were the same between the two platforms.

It’s almost a shame this needs to be treated as “news”. It’s probably only the gazillionth* article espousing this point going back 15 years or more. It comes as no surprise to anyone not dependent on the Windows ecosystem.

* “Gazillionth” is not a word. I made it up. It’s hyperbole. No real numbers were harmed in the making of this post.
