Mac OS X is not Linux based, but BSD based.

Although i havent yet experienced the realm of Mac yet, I would have to say that Linux is one of the safest OS as of yet, and Win XP is the most vulnerable.

I'd count BSD based operating systems as unix (OS X, Solaris, Ubuntu). Than theirs true unix OS's like UX and AIX but you don't see these being used that much, except in some super high end computers
