I'm a GIT major (sort of a graphic design major but entirely emphasized on computer work) and, though I don't like Macs, they do dominate nearly all of the print industry and very large portions of other graphics-related industries.
Sure, Silicon Graphics is the way to go, if you can afford it, but unless you're ILM, you're mostly limited to Mac or PC. And when it's down to that... I must admit that Macintosh systems are many times more versatile when it comes to printing, pre-press, pre-flight, etc. Color matching is horrid on PC... Though Adobe's color correction helps if implemented properly.
The problem with Macs is that, unless you're working on a several-thousand-dollar PowerMac, your supposedly "simplified" work habits are going to be peppered by pointless lock-ups, out-of-memory errors, and the likes.
But the reason Mac has been so much less successful than PC's in the past decade or so is not in the glitches... I mean, c'mon... Like Microsoft doesn't have glitches? Ha! No, PC's have dominated because of better, more aggressive business practice, largely on the behalf of one Bill Gates.
