Apple lands major German customer



By

According to Heise Online (German, Google Translation), German newspaper publisher Axel Springer is migrating its 10,000 employees worldwide to the Mac. The company, which has for years used Macs exclusively for layout and prepress, plans to complete the move over five years and says it will involved 12,000 computers eventually.

"The Apple computers are easier to operate than all the others," CEO Mathias Döpfner, adding that procurement and maintenance costs will be lower than purchasing and supporting PCs.

However, the operating environment will continue to be heterogenous during and after the transition with users running OS X, XP and Vista, depending on need.

Axel Springer will be Apple's second-largest customer worldwide. Cupertino's No 1 computer customer is Google.

Editor's note: A game changing moment? Not really. It wouldn't surprised if a 10,000-seat enterprise wasn't even in Microsoft's Top 100 customer list.

Still, it's a nice little coup...
