the same goes for viruses(sp). There is no point in making a virus for that mac cause no one really cares to spend the time. The whole macs dont get viruses thing is only gonna stay true unless/until they turn into a big target. the user-base/target isnt big enough yet to warrant the work it would take. now im not saying that there is gonna be virus that comes out cause of this. but Apple makes it seem like its virtually impossible. All it does is take one person with the right tools, time, and intelligence and a virus can be made for it.

If people can hack government firewalls, that mac would be a piece of cake to them.

In all seriousness, this is pretty cool, but not much of a spectator sport.
Ahaha, good one, but no true though lol.

You are completly right, the virus-free BS is just a marketing scheme which, luckily for now remains true because no one really cares about MAC OS.
Oh and by the way, something that made me even more an anti-apple person:
My teacher bought one of the newest iPods, and she has MAC OS 10.4.3 or something similiar; so one day she called me to fix her internet problems, and I also troubleshooted the iPod thing. Well, it turned out that the "iPod is incompatible with this version of MAC OS X" Yeah right, the only requirement is USB 2.0 support, that is pure BS and they were very happy to tell us that Apple could do the upgrade for us, of course, at what cost? At least, when you get new hardware, it's certified to be compatible with Windows XP SP1 or SP2 (big deal, it's free), which is out since how many years?

Probably so, but Windows will be hacked long before Ubuntu will.

I think someone should release a huge virus for OSX. One that will shutdown all the macs for a little bit just to show them how arrogant they are. It wouldn't effect very many people, but still. Just to knock Jobs off his high horse.

Not really gunna happen. It has a UNIX-style design, making it secure. FreeBSD is incredibly secure and stable.

Why market share has something to do with it, it isn't the only reason. Being based off of Unix it has to with how user accounts are setup, permissions, and how all of the services are handled.

I don't understand on what basis you kids make these bold claims. What type of evidence do you have to support this? Do you even know what you're talking about?

You don't seem to even understand the fundamental differences between the UNIX design (common to Ubuntu AND Apple) and the windows proprietary design. It's silly that you kids say such things without the slightest idea why - just because you know you "hate" Apple.
