Mac OS X "[Last week], we reported on a Trojan horse for Mac OS X that is just like the entry for Earth in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in that it is mostly harmless. A new vulnerability targeted at Apple's home-grown web browser, Safari, is another matter entirely. A German security firm appears to have been the first to discover the Safari flaw, which allows for shell scripts to be executed after clicking a link."

Every OS will have flaws, it's part of life.

Now, the big challenge is how the company, in this case Apple respond to the problem, and release a patch of fix, and how easily the patch is applied.

That's what it comes down to in the end.

And this is where Microsoft falls behind, it's not because of their flaws, it's because of their average patch time is around 130 days. And they refuse to release a patch earlier than the normal allotted patch dates.
