today announced results of their Spring 2003 study of the creative markets. The research showed that business conditions continued to show slight improvement for nearly all survey respondents in the Spring 2003 survey and that "the Mac is clearly the operating system of choice for design and production firms, with 82% of all respondents naming the Mac as their primary OS. However, adoption of Mac OS X remains slow; only 17% of those polled have upgraded their systems to the new OS." The study also noted that the Mac is not quite as popular among internet design and development firms, where only 22% use the Mac OS as their primary operating system.
