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."

One can ramble all one wants to about technical shortcomings, architecture flaws, anything you want as a reason an OS is "insecure", but the fact there are and has never been, any attacks, trumps all that hoohaa.

Right, because if it hasn't happened yet there's no need to worry.
