And Now The Mac

Recommended Posts

I saw this today in the news. I think it is interesting. However, despite 2 mac users who got a virus, I'd still wager that Macs are much safer than PCs and will continue to be for some time yet...

Indeed, thinking that your system is safe in any default configuration (unless you use OpenBSD, even then you shouldn't overlook security) is a bad idea. Users these days expect stuff to "Just Work" , and that requires vendors relaxing security features so users don't complain about things like "Why do I need an administrator account to install this program?". I'm unfortunate, but that's how things are.


Personally, I still love a Mac :) It's got Unix-based underpinnings with a sexy interface. You can't get much better than that...
