    Honestly, I think that while we should be cautious just like any other computer user, we won't have much trouble.

    It took five years of Max OS X for a "virus" (malware app) to come out, and it's a piece of crap. Poorly written. It's like if I took a giant rollercoaster that wasn't quite finished yet, with track pieces missing everywhere, and I put a coaster train at the front and say "Okay, train, if you make it to the end, this coaster is ready for public use!" There's a slight chance it could make it, but chances are it will fail. As this malware app did. We had an estimated 0-30 people affected by it, none of whom were damaged (as in their computers), per se. And a whopping 0-2 companies affected by it.

    If it takes a virus five years to pop up, I wouldn't put too much faith in another one coming out for quite a while.
