    I used to count the proportion of Mac laptops in the room (or, at
    least, my row) to pass the time when I was bored.

    Nanog-29 was the first where I saw a substantial proportion. I
    remember at the 1999 Washington IETF I saw exactly one, and I
    could hear people whisper about it around me.

    Now, there are too many to make it interesting.
