Mac OS X While Snow Leopard includes some improvements in the area of security, noted security researcher Charlie Miller, winner of two consecutive "Pwn2own" hacker contests and co-author of The Mac Hacker's Handbook, concludes that Apple missed the boat on security in Mac OS X Snow Leopard. "Snow Leopard's more secure than Leopard, but it's not as secure as Vista or Windows 7," Miller said.

Microsoft have also been advising dev to use safer code. As much senior dev have been advising to use safer code, but it is often using non portable api.

I did not say that Microsoft doesn't do it, i say that because Apple does it, it by definition contradicts Miller claims, which is that Apple does not do enough in security.
