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."

Yes, that would be a great solution, but then everyone on here and every pundit on the internet will complain and moan and rant and rave that it is a "closed system" or "walled garden" and therefore is worthless because you can't install open source software on it, or Apple is being its usual draconian control-freak self, or some other such nonsense.

You are 100% right on that! People keep forgetting that Apple's main goal is to support mom and pop, not power users!
