Interesting that he says that 9 was more secure because I recall getting SevenDust on my old 6500, but I have yet to get a virus on any of my OS X machines and I've been using them for far longer.

What's with all the "we" stuff?

Quote:
Wozniak told Macworld: “There wasn’t an objective engineering type look at the operating system that we had. It was not at fault, although it was implicit a little, it was not the reason Macs were crashing. Apple thought it was and it gave a horrible opinion inside Apple as to what steps we should take to correct it, and these steps were wrong. There was nothing wrong with OS 7.”

“My feeling wasn’t so much about operating systems, as: ‘Does Apple need OS X?’” Wozniak confessed his concerns to Steve Jobs: “I remember asking Steve, telling Steve, that we didn’t really need a new operating system for that amount of money involved in the purchase of NeXT. But he said he had an obligation to his shareholders at NeXT.”
Wasn't Woz gone from Apple long before this? Unless he means the "Editorial We"

He still offcially is an Apple employee, although only receives a token salary. If you started up a company that you are still closely associated with, whether you were an employee still or not, you'd always be tempted to say we though.
