Mac OS X Secunia said there are potential vulnerabilities in the Mac OS X operating system, first noticed by Tom Ferris. The firm described the holes as 'highly critical', meaning that systems could be compromised if crooks dive in. Secunia said the potential holes are in version 10.4.6, but other versions might be affected too.

OSX has sales figures. Linux has hope and dreams.

...and documented installs of tens of thousands of desktops.

Whereas I personally know only exactly 1 (one) person owning a Mac.

Because for sure, you personally know tens of thousands persons owning a Linux Desktop ...

Anyway, there is at least one million of Macs sold each quarter (http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2006/jan/18results.html).

So far away your tens of thousands persons you "personally know" owning a linux desktop.

documented installs of *Nix versus people who you know that may run OS X......?

I personally know 3 people who have windows installed (my mom & dad, my sister and my neighbour), and over 20 which have a macintosh. Does this mean OS X has ~90 % market share? By your logic it would.....
