Panther and Windows?

BusinessWeek reports on Apple's success in switching some users. Curiously, it notes the following:



    Next, Apple's newest version of OS X, called Panther -- which is scheduled to debut later this year -- will let corporations run Windows applications on their Macs. That's a major plus, considering that nearly all companies use Windows.



At the moment, this odd claim can only be written off as a mistake -- despite the fact that the article goes on to say that Greg Maynes of the Maynes Associates Architects claims "such compatibility is a major selling point".



Update: BusinessWeek's article has been corrected:



    Next, Apple's newest version of OS X, called Panther -- which is scheduled to debut later this year -- coupled with new emulation software from Microsoft (MSFT ) will let corporations run Windows applications on their Macs more smoothly. That's a major plus, considering that nearly all companies use Windows.
