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.

"...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.

Tens of thousands linux users is what we have in Denmark alone. Not that it counts much compared with the millions of windows users, though.

While I generally agree with you, the numbers can be a little deceiving.

Yes, Apple may sell at least a million macs every quarter, but how many of those macs continue to run OS X and not have their OS replaced with Linux or some other operating system?
