    Here is "Why I submitted the link"

    From 1987 Mac SE to now I had about 100 macs: Mac Se, II, Se30, II fx, LC, Quadra 950, Centris 650, Quadra 800, Quadra 630, 6200, 7500, 8500, 9600, G3, G4, G5, iMac G4, iMac G5, MacbookPro 17" and 1 PC. In 20 years never a virus on mac, The PC, after 6 months, is out for a malicious virus that neither Norton AV can eradicate and I had to format and reinstall everything (about 4 hours). On a G4 with OSX server I had a problem with RAM, so some file got corrupted. I reinstalled a clean system saving users and preferences, and all was OK in 40 minutes. So I laughed when I read Bill's quote on macs.

    billy gates sounds like the typical fanboy; has no idea what is happening with the other systems around, and instead relies on old myths, or what people tell him.

    my mate said 'macs are much more expensive than PCs; you have to spend $4000 (aussie dollars by the way) to get a decent system'. i showed him a customised dell vs macbook pro. the dell was $US200 more expensive than the MBP, and it had lower specs. he shut up after that... :rolleyes:

    i hate ignorant users of both macs and PCs. The mac fanboys which say OS X never crashes ever, and the PC fanboys who say macs cost more than a european city. gah...

    Yeah I'll admit that I've had a few random kernal panics which I would class as OS X crashing.
