Oh my god, there's a bug in OS X that will make your printer catch fire? Why am I not hearing about flaming printers all over the planet? Has this ever been a problem? NO

Oh my god, there are bugs in OS X that have been there for 10 years? Why am I not hearing about millions of computers being hacked or taken over or dying or breaking into flames because of these bugs? Have these bugs ever been a problem? NO

Oh my god, OS X is the most insecure OS ever devised by man, with millions of vulnerabilities. Why am I not hearing about every Mac being taken over by malware and viruses that they are supposed to be vulnerable to? Has there EVER been a Mac virus or malware that actually took over millions of Apple computers like several Windows viruses and malware have in the past? NO.....NOT ONE!

I am a Windows user as well as a Mac user. I have had to deal with many virus and malware infections over the years. Thankfully not as many since XP and Win7, so improvements have obviously been made. But by the same token I have NEVER had to deal with ANY problem on ANY of my Macs over the years.
