Only rootkit type anti-virus that slows a whole machine horrible would make it semi-immune to infection.
So no matter what Apple, Microsoft or anyone else does there will still be ways to infect machines and disable them, or infect and use them.
But, at least apple is open to the idea their super secure system is as full of holes as my strainer.
But I swore that making an unpopular OS would mean it was immune to infection
