Most corporations use PC, it's better for the corporate environment, although OSX would be a more stable platform, most don't know how to do it yet.

Currently, only some of the rich kids and graphic designers or those who know the advantage of using a mac uses mac.

Lots of gaming programmers ONLY use PC. SO they make their games for pc users. They will usually work on MACs but the screen will display it funny or the pixels will be off i think its mostly because programmers have been used to PCs because that was out first (for gaming anyway) and they dont really want to change.

Nope, mac use a totally different environement, most developers need money to port them over to OSX since the commands would be different and often includes having to re-map the keyboard shortcuts etc.

Most developers either:
1) Too lazy to remap
2) Too little budget
3) Not familiar with OSX
4) Don't think the OSX community would be a good market (Profit wise)

Some studios like Blizzard had their own porting software, which takes almost less then a day to port a completed program over to OSX via Cocoa.
