Apple Since it's weekend, which usually equates to no news, we figured we'd follow in Engadget's footsteps by asking you, our dear and loving readers, what you would change about Apple's current Mac Pro. Engadget readers already had a few things to say - this is the internet after all. And since this is OSNews, we add a question of our own: what would you change about Mac OS X?

OSX is still really secure just because not a lot of people have an incentive to exploit it, not because the security is great.


This has been debunked to death. Read the relevant literature.

As a counter-argument, Mac OS (7|8|9) while being used by the same percentage that use Mac OS X (and even less), had a lot of viruses. OS X has none (trojans requiring user interaction are not viruses).

So it's not the market share percentage that defines how many viruses OS X has in re: to Windows, but O.S implementation.

(Back in the day, Amiga and Atari had a lot of viruses too, despite having only a tiny fraction of Mac OS and PC marketshare).
