I've been using Linux for 15 and I've never had any security issues either. And the last time I had a Windows virus was about 10 years ago. So what's your point?
P.S.: Most of "Apple Hate" isn't hate for the products themselves. First, there's making fun of the sheep who buy all their stuff like it was a religion. (I'm not talking about anyone
who buys their stuff, just the ones who are like "Steve is GOD!". Which there are a lot of.) Then the hate for the company itself is because their policies have been shown, time and time again, to spit on their customers' faces - their level of service is far less than what you get from other companies (at least while in warranty it is, once you pay then it's fine), and on top of that, they lie directly to their faces about everything. Just like this document shows. "We know it's infected, but don't let the customers know that we know". What the hell is that.
On the iPad's release day last year, there were ~75000 people waiting in line for it at the Apple store in Manhattan when the doors opened. When 2000 of them were asked if they had looked at other options first, 75% said no. When asked if they had any special use for it, 97% said no. That's what I call "willful ignorance", which roughly translates to "56,250 people who want
to be stupid". However good or bad the iPad is/was is irrelevant; as far as these people were concerned, nothing else even existed.
Also, the fact that someone can wait in line all day and night behind 74,999 other people just to spend money on something they don't actually need
is really....just wow. What a waste of life.
