You also have the issue of priority, Windows security issues are much more likely to be exploited than OSX ones, simply due to Windows having the far larger user database.
They seem to have plenty of resources to piss off anyone who has seen more than a couple of their ads, not to mention to blow off support for Java, Firefox (Some article about they intentionally were slowing it down?) and many other Applications and Hardware.
If it was just the operating system itself being sold, and they had it to compete with windows and actually supported more applications and hardware, I would support them 100%...but the fact is is that they propritarize (Don't know exactly how to explain in one word all of their proprietary hardware, software, etc, etc) everything, and overcharge you for it.
And to Gunner - You make alot better points than most of the people against you, and definitely have my respect...but you need to be more open to others opinions if you want them to be open to yours...I remember when you said that iLife and iMusic were better than their windows counterparts, which, like the OS argument I frequently see you in (
), one of the sides say it's a fact that it's worse, and the other says it is based on opinion...just remember that liking OSX is an opinion, as is liking WMP11
