    New to OSX. Where do I go to learn about firewalls, protecting against virus and spyware? I am fairly experienced with Windows security measures but no clue when it comes to the Apple World.
    :D :D :D

    If you really want to be up-to-speed on OS X then buy the Panther edition of Mac OS X: The Missing Manual (by David Pogue, popular Mac author). I got it when I got OS 10.1, and it taught me quite a bit...and I've been using Macs my whole life.
