Mac OS X "In the wake of the Flashback botnet which targeted Mac computers, Apple has removed a statement from its messages on its website that Mac operating system X (OS X) isn't susceptible to viruses." It was an untenable statement anyway. Security is an illusion.

Member since:

Yet OTOH, OSX updates tend to have silly size (even stranger, some of Apple fans seem to boast about any supposed network problems this brings); while, on the plus side, MS patches tend to be smaller, more manageable.

And still, those "staged" updates also most likely stem from possible implications of a failed update (even if very rarely, that would still end up in a massive number of end-user machines with Windows) - less testing when the process is more strictly specified like that, I imagine.
