I wanted to get everyone's take on how they feel about MacOS now that the dust has settled after the root password bug last week. Here's what I'm struggling with: How can I honestly recommend to someone that they buy a Mac if we can't trust Apple to not release major security flaws? Let me explain that statement a little further. I understand perfectly well that security vulnerabilities happen, and are to a certain degree inevitable. However, I feel like we also need to hold software and hardware makers to a higher degree of responsibility than we currently do. I started using MacOS 17 years ago partly because I had confidence that it would be more secure than the alternatives. But last week's bug was so massive, and so boneheaded, that I have a hard time continuing the believe that anymore. Especially when you take into consideration the large strides Microsoft has taken in the last several years. Here's another way to put it. My mother is looking to upgrade her laptop. Currently she has a PC running Windows 10. I've been telling her for months that she should get a Mac because it's more secure. But how can anyone say that anymore with a straight face when you now have to preface such statements with "even though they just had the worst security vulnerability that I can remember."
