PleASE realize that this message is not a trolly message...I just want an explanation.... I am thinking about buying a new powermac, when I was talking with my IT guy at work, we started to talk about spyware and all the crud that you get on windows computers. He said that the reason macs dont get spyware is because the idiots who design spyware and popups and all that junk dont market it towards macs because there is such a small population using them. It is kind of like robbing a small bank when you could rob a large bank. So, what happens when Macs become more popular and marketers start producing spyware for macs. There will be little advantage to buying them, and they would still be more expensive, they always have been. Other than gimics like free .Mac accounts, how will apple maintain its reputation as the "safer" computer???
