    I was obiously thinking i would find apple haters in this thread.
    M$ su*ks sweaty donkey balls regarding OS security and vulnerabilities. And pretty much everything else.
    If you want a robust system, and you are actually able to use it. Go and use a Unix flavoured OS.
    DannibusX says thanks.

    Unix is not any more secure than Windows 7. It's been proven at every hacking convention.

    I think you haven't gone to any since the XP days. Win 7 is usually the last to fall at the conventions. Win 7 is every bit as secure as unix if you leave the security features on. Most exploits happen through 3rd party software, and even those are quickly patched if found. The days of being able to bash Windows for being insecure are long gone.

    As it stands, OS X (a UNIX based OS) is actually the least secure platform right now. Only because Apple is very slow to patch vulnerabilities. The only reason we don't see more malware is because not many are bothering for such a small market share.
    suraswami and Frick say thanks.
