I love it when Mac people start saying how wonderful it is not to have to worry about virus's and such. I have owned many different PC's over the years and have NEVER been affected by a virus. That's what virus software is for. So.... keep paying 3x as much for a comparably based computer system and shouting from the rooftops how you don't need to worry about virus's and I'll keep enjoying my virus free PC and all the extra money I saved!
Not flaming Mac's or Mac owners but seems to be a bit of a snob factor when Macies start comparing Mac's vs PC's.

A computer user, mac or pc, that is cautious in what they do may never get a virus ever. Most of the things that hit macs require a user to input the admin password. But even with anti-virus software some key software has holes in it that can cause issues. Flash is one of those and a few other Adobe products. But I agree that a user who does not do things cautiously on mac or pc will eventually run into an issue.

Sure but the difference is this.... I don't think I'm better because I own a PC, which is exactly the attitude you get from some Mac owners. (smarter with my money for my needs yes, better, no.) As far as people not "shouting form the rooftops" are you mad? Every time the topic comes up you get people coming out of the woodwork to say how lucky they are they have a mac which to them = no virus infection. (see this thread for a small sampling of what I'm talking about)

I love my mac but I know I am not immune. I just do the same as I did when I had a windows machine, practice safe computing lol. But I have no issues against Windows XP and/or 7.

Anyone who states the typical old "security via obscurity" myth has no idea what they're talking about.
Now, it is a fact that more people code viruses for Windows than they do for Mac, but this isn't the main reason why macs are more secure.
OS X is based on Unix, a solid, tried-and-tested, server-grade operating system.
Windows is, well... Windows. I don't need to say anything else. Everyone knows Windows is horrifically insecure.
There are no viruses for mac. The only times I've ever heard that there supposedly is, is when security companies with a product to sell send out a press release say there is.
Just FUD spin...
