Mac OS X "Using a Mac may certainly be a safer choice for a lot of people as despite being vulnerable they are not targeted. However this is not the same as Macs being secure, something Eric Schmidt erroneously advised recently. I may be able to browse impervious to malware on a Mac at the moment, however I personally would not be comfortable using a platform so easily compromised if someone had the motivation to do so. In this article I address just why OS X is so insecure including the technical shortcomings of OS X as well as Apples policies as a company that contribute to the situation."

Somebody comes along and posts a ridiculous article (OS X is less secure than Windows because Windows has more ACLs! ASLR solves all our problems!) and gets a mix of ridiculous agreement comments and successfully-trolled people.

When you see the word "horribly" in an article title, that's a good indicator that it's more tabloid style and less, you know, factual.
