What do the thin clients run? Are you using Windows Servers if you say MS Office is still critical? In any case my point still stands. Macs are not displacing PCs in the most lucrative market, the business market. The iPads sound like a new thing since I doubt you had a PC outside every meeting room. We've looked at thin clients where I work but they were not cost effective for what we need.

Walk into any office of any reasonably sized company. Count the number of Macs. Now count the number of PCs. In my company for example the only Macs I see are when people bring their own. That's my definition of winning the PC war. Windows PCs are going nowhere, but a shift in consumer preferences could completely trash Apple's bottom line.

Yeah yeah you had no problems therefore they don't exist. I wish Linux advocates would be more honest about its flaws. I think it's great but it's nowhere near perfect. I swapped a Mint hard drive from another machine into this one and it works flawlessly which Windows most certainly wouldn't, however when I put Ubuntu on that other machine it was a nightmare.
