i was talking to my dad just now when we were watching the uac get a mac ad about vista being required to cancel or allow anything. he then said that when the mac gets big, the macs will get as littered with viruses and adware as windows does now. he claims that the biggest advantage apple had was that nobody bought a mac and thus hackers saw no profit in killing a small market. i then told him that with macs having about 5% market share, that you would expect a few viruses on there. i told him the difference between dos and unix, and he kept saying that macs will be attacked more in the future with 144000 viruses coming soon. i know hackers will probably attack the mac more with increased market share, but he believes that the mac is just as secure as windows. i need to tell him that macs are more secure than pc's and one of the reasons that macs have no viruses is because of the coding is more secure and harder to break. any ideas?
