idn't see that one coming. 

Major incentives for enterprise and corporate customers to use iOS.

IBM will begin selling iOS devices directly to its corporate customers.

IBM will create more than 100 iOS apps that tap into their major services used in the industry.

IBM will provide cloud services optimized for iOS (incl. device management, security, analytics, and mobile integration, etc.).

Apple will provide a new 24/7 AppleCare support for enterprise customers.

No mention of OSX, not hard to see Apple creating an Enterprise OSX under guidelines of IBM to provide a full enterprise solution using Enterprise OSX and IBM services. Off course there are bound to be many industry specific softwares that are built only for Windows, but they can run under virtualisation, and add integration from phone, tablet and desktop. Could be huge

Pretty sure this will be a strictly mobile arrangement 'cos that's where they see the growth specifically. Little point in competing with M'soft in that space, and enterprise desktop is not Apple's focus or interest.

It hasnt been. Doesnt mean that is still the case. With IBM collaborating, and the integration growing between iOS and OSX devices, an enterprise OSX in the future seems quite possible. IMO
