    I would definetly agree with that being an understatement. Although, could be "Windows 95 flawed" haha.

    Doesn't publicizing the flaw draw more attention to the possibility of creating a virus?

    That is a pretty good understatement. And when are they going to fix this problem? Never of course... :rolleyes:

    Yet, you don't see Apple on the headlines on websites as having a flawed operating system.

    All software contains bugs. there is a famous quote from a guy named Dijkstra: "Program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence!". that is basically taught to every software engineer. it means that all software contains bugs, which means that all software is inherently flawed at some point.

    computer only stay secure and become better protected when we believe that are not secure. to say that apple operating system isn't flaw on some level, it is naive because how would it become more secure? assume it is perfect and go on?

    Superbovine raises an excellent point. Never be satisfied. Good enough never is. Although Superbovine is a good enough user name, probably the funniest I've ever seen.

    very true, but i never said OS X was flawless, otherwise we wouldn't have 10.1, 10.2... etc, but there's a degree of flawed code in every software, and there just happens to be more (i believe) in microsoft's code for windows.
