I ran into an argument with a loyal Windows fan. He hates Macs. He'd marry Windows if he could. And I asked him how he can defend Windows as a better OS. He said security. At first, I laughed but then he started to make sense. Why was Mac OS X nearly virus free in the first place? Because it wasn't popular. Virus makers didn't care about OS X. Now, OS X's market share is getting huge and this caught the eyes of malware makers. Flashback. Apple took a long while to deal with it. Hacking. A Mac was hacked by a great hacker (I don't have the exact time, but I guess it was 4 minutes). And there you have it. And finally, he said that if Mac OS X became as popular as Windows, it's will be swarming with more viruses due to Apple's ignorance (based on the long time response to the Flashback trojan). What do you think?
