Mac OS X "Yesterday, I read what I consider to be a provoking piece at ZDNet. It pointed out that while there is no question that Macs are not the malware targets that Windows machines are, they're most certainly not immune to an attack of the right variety. It went on to backup its point with a real world scenario in which a University of New South Wales Mac server had been hit by malware. Disturbingly, the server had apparently been running the latest updates from Apple and still managed to get hit. It mentioned that, in the author's opinion, Apple was 'misleading people' into believing that their OS was more secure than it really is. Whether or not that is true is frankly immaterial to me. It should be noted that no OS is 100 percent bulletproof, and I believe this is what it was driving home at. Unfortunately, some people within the Mac community felt differently."

I use something that is a good product, that I like, and is a big part of my everyday life.

I'm constantly reading an opinion from someone who doesn't seem to know anything about it, yet wants to tell everyone what's wrong with it and how much it sucks.

these "mac people are so defensive" statements sound a lot like "black people are so defensive when we say they're stupid" to me.

people just get tired of hearing others spout hateful nonsense.
