Meh...it's not bad how long the Mac OS has been safe. It has a better track record than Windows (like Windows 95 , 98 and ME).

98% of computers are Intel/AMD based (and i bet most likely use windows.. with the exception of linux or something like that), so naturally, alvino, the Mac would be safer. It isn't as widely used.

They aren't totally awful. Some things have multiple sources, like this story. And it wasn't reuters who originally reported this but Symantec.

Yeah...it doesn't mean that the Mac OS sucks either.
