Will Yammer stop using Mac OS X?

According to,Job which is live as I write this piece, Yammer's infrastructure in New York location is "Entirely Mac Based". Now that they have agreed to be acquired by Microsoft, will this change? Notice how Yammer does not seem to use Microsoft products and services at all. Will they stop using Google Apps? As Yoda might say, so many questions there are.
