Despite enterprise-worthy products, Apple wants no part of the enterprise. History hasn't been kind to Apple's enterprise ambitions. Blame it on the products -- which emphasized personal productivity over corporate citizenship -- or on the smug superiority of Apple users. But "Mac" and "enterprise" have seldom been uttered in the same sentence. Unless you're talking to InfoWorld's chief technologist and resident Mac fanatic Tom Yager, that is.

If it is true that Apple has no interest in selling computers to the enterprise, why did they introduce the XServe and why did they add an enterprise/IT track at WWDC in 2003?

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
