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.

Are you still surprised by the reaction you got? Nerds... <sigh>.


There's equal measures of blame to go around there. Yes, many geeks are poor salespeople because they assume the best product for their needs is also the best product for the customer's needs.

But, by the same token, many people have such fragile egos that they will interpret any suggestion as implied criticism - no matter how careful you are to avoid phrasing the suggestion as "what you're doing is stupid, here's what you should do instead."

And neither of those have anything to do with "Apple product owners." The OP (of this little subthread of comments) started to distance himself from Apple users because they are all idiots? Ridiculous, it was a troll.

Eh? Why would my comment have anything to do with Apple product owners? My post was a response to a follow-up comment - not to the OP.
