Mac OS X Well, it took them long enough. Apple has finally acknowledged the existence of the MAC Defender trojan, and has offered removal instructions. The company has also promised a security update to Mac OS X that will block MAC Defender and its variants from working. All this information was published in the form of a support document on Apple's website. Update: Well, that was fast. A new variant of the trojan, called Mac Guard, has been discovered. Unlike previous variants, this one does not require users to enter their administrative password.

And I've had opposite results at work with Apple, in regards to AD integration and Samba on OS X Server. They've always been very quick to respond, and they really are quite helpful.

I've also had very different experiences with Microsoft than you have, and they weren't positive.

My point is everyone has different experiences; nothing is a universal truth. Posting on the Internet "oh yeah? Well I had a crappy experience, so you're wrong!!" is dumb.

I also find it quite unnecessary that you call the other guy sheep, and are so condescending. Try for a moment not to be the smarmy IT guy.
