Mac OS X are safer, but don't you think that when some OS like Windows have 90% of market, that it is the main goal of hackers/crackers or whatever you call it? Also, Linux is also UNIX, and it is free. UNIX means maybe safer, but it isn't impossible, and MAC computers can hack and infect. I think there was some competition to hack MAC or something like that, and they succeed. I would like to have Mac, and I am maybe getting Macbook soon, but it isn't fair to compare like that. Also Windows users maybe hate Mac's (some), but look at Mac forums and Linux. They are bashing Windows, and telling that Windows users are stupid, and that they are superior if they are using Macintosh..
