Rediculous. Apple goofed by making Quicktime for windows IMO. :rolleyes:

"Fixes are available."

Yeah, unfortunately that's about the only point where they aren't trying to scare people and put osx down. They seem to be trying to say because they fixed it that osx is bad. They have some serious logic flaws in their ways of thinking.

God, I thought my parents' Windows computers were safe until I read this. :rolleyes:

Nice.

So now Apple sounds like Microsoft?

"Fixes are available?"

Steve™ better knock me off my socks in August at WWDC, because things have SUCKED since MWSF.

With some of these articles going around you almost get the feeling that the antivirus industry wants all of the Windows owners out there to stay being windows owners.

Tiresome. Yet another article telling us that OS X is not safe, that the Mac is every bit as insecure as Windows and that people should not even think of switching. Bleh.

I don't need an article on the web telling me to fear Mac security. I'll wait until real users are experiencing problems with viruses and "flaws". In the mean time I know exactly which operating system is most secure.

Bottom line: show me the proof that Macs are insecure. Show me the comprimised systems. You made the claim, now it's time to back it up!

Of course Windows is more secure. You can buy McAfee VirusScan for Windows, and everybody (well, everybody in McAfee's marketing department) knows that a computer can't be secure without VirusScan. Since they don't make VirusScan for Mac OS, Mac OS must be insecure. QED.

(Yes, I know McAfee makes Virex. Good luck figuring out how to get them to sell you a copy.)

Closed smilied for the humor impaired.

Repeat after me:

1. No OS is ever perfect.

2. Therefore OS X is not perfect.

3. Therefore OS X is every bit AS bad as Windows.

4. Therefore, Windows is better.
