    I am really not trying to be a douche. And I'm not trying to slate Windows.

    All I'm saying is that in the amount of years that I've owned a Mac (Bondi Blue iMac to current MacBook and quite a few others in between) I've never come across a virus. If there is one I'll apologise like I've already said.

    See above.

    Also in my 15 years using PC's I have yet to have a computer infected by a virus.

    I have never had to use any sort of anti-virus software. (Even Sziklassy admits the same). Whether that continues I don't know.... However, I'm just trying to say that this "vulnerability" is not a virus. Why people want to make such a hoo-har over this compared to the vulnerability of Windows is beyond me. I don't believe Apple is "God-Like", I just like their products. iPhone included!

    Ha! Ha! All these people who want to slag off anything to do with Apple have suddenly gone quiet. Maybe that's because they own an Apple product? Hmmm.

    Well seeing as everyone on this site does own an apple product of some sort, I doubt they are trying to slag everything off. They've probably moved on.
    I believe that people make a hoo-har when something is wrong with OS X, because of such "confident" slogans Apple distribute, examples include:
    • "A Mac does everything a PC does, but better"
    • "It just works"
    • The PC vs Mac adverts which get off on demeaning and stereotyping the PC user.

    Apple repeat this over, and over... and over.... I guess it's getting to the point where people think that Apple and their customers are just plain cocky (may not be true, but I have seen a lot of cocky mac owners).
    Now, if something with Apple goes terribly wrong, people will gloat;
    honestly, wouldn't you find it funnier if you saw a pompous fool trip over and land in mud, compared to an average Joe?

    Hopefully they'll support Steve Coppell as much as they do Steve Jobs then Dale.

    I Wasn't Built on a Mac, Honest!

    Sorry, I'm going so off-topic here.

    But what would happen if you did the same for Windows fparedesg?

    That is my point, I'm not knocking Windows - I'm just saying I've never had a virus problem with OSX. Windows people seem to be jumping for joy when they hear about a problem with Apple. Why is that? If you don't like Apple send your phone to me please.

    You would get a lot more results. I am not supporting Windows, in fact, I hate Windows. I prefer OS X by far. My favorite OS has to be Linux, that's the one I use the most, which is also "virus free", but that's not the point here, is it?

    You are saying that you aren't bashing Windows, but with that comment, looks like you're contradicting yourself. What I'm trying to prove here is that there are viruses for OS X, opposed to what you previously stated.

    aren't you the guy that kept caps lock on in the "perfect storm 1.0" thread? Most people would notice 3 seconds into typing a response that they're typing all in caps and would go back to retype the response or take off caps lock.

    Just saying.

    I'm wondering the same thing. I primary use safari because it seems to be smoother and faster than firefox. Is opera a better browser than firefox and safari?! Does anyone else find that safari is faster than firefox or am I trippin?!
