Mac OS X While Snow Leopard includes some improvements in the area of security, noted security researcher Charlie Miller, winner of two consecutive "Pwn2own" hacker contests and co-author of The Mac Hacker's Handbook, concludes that Apple missed the boat on security in Mac OS X Snow Leopard. "Snow Leopard's more secure than Leopard, but it's not as secure as Vista or Windows 7," Miller said.

That's not FUD, and you know it. The article clearly differentiates between technical and real-world security. On top of that, it's a quote, so even if it were FUD, it's not MY FUD.

I'll give you another try. Good luck!

You present the information in the article summary from a technical perspective rather then real-world, to spread your biased opinion.

I disagree with you, so go ahead and delete this thread.
