“There are a variety of university-level computer-human interaction (CHI) programs. Although a few offer breath and diversity, many students graduate from universities that offer only one or two CHI courses. As such, most students have a limited background in the various CHI areas.

Correspondingly, brand loyalty among Macintosh users is almost 20% higher than that for Windows users.”
