I'm sure there are spyware apps out there for Macs, but even if there were millions it would still be better than Windows because I've never seen an application that could install itself without a password prompt on OS X.

They could fool YOU into putting it on your system, but that wouldn't really be OS X's fault...

the fact that you need a password to do just about anything involving system changes (including installing apps) makes OSX a very secure platform. kudos to whoever switches as a result of finally realizing this.

You mean, besides M$ Word? :D
What about just plain M$ Windows? I mean honestly, to activate the OS you have to send them your Machine Specs and if they change too drastically you have to either re-register it or call up M$ to make it stick? WTF, if I add a new video card why do I have to re-register? If I add more RAM why do I have to re-register? A new motherboard, yes I can understand cause that could mean a new computer, but still, why with a new video card, ram, etc.?

i just find it interesting that no one can talk about a nice OS X feature without bashing windows.

anyway, this decision shows the flaw in our legal system, not in windows itself. nowadays, it is interesting to see what the word "legal" really means. it has become defined as "just barely not bad enough to be illegal" instead of "lawful". i guess technically they are correct, but it still doesnt mean that it is ok to practice business this way.
