By the way : the guys you talk about can run windoze on their Macbooks normally, so it should work that way. Of course, that's the whole point

like it or not, Windows is the standard for the majority of businesses out there; a smaller company can get away with using linux/mac OSX, once you near a certain amount of different clients with different requests, your options become a lot more limited and Windows OS is flexible to meet the requests from both a programmer as a sales person to a load tester to an administrator.

Look at it the other way 'round for a minute : say we have a large business using Macs and want to integrate windows users : a lot easier than the other way 'round.
Of course, then we get to the ever-present software argument: this is the chicken and the egg problem : all major software is available on the Mac, but when you get to developing new soft (the programmer you talk about), most is developed for windows and thus mostly on windows machines (and rightly so in that respect). As long as windows is the primary os, these things will not change.
However, for all large businesses NOT into developing software, this argument is not valid : they can build their company around Mac OS as well as Windows. It's just a transition from Windows that will never happen as integration is indeed too difficult.
