Once they get enough idiots on the Mac, there will be plenty of problems there too. I worked for a long time in PC repair. Most virus/trojan/malware problems are the users own fault. Not all, most. If you have a computer, you need to have an up to date firewall and virus detection software. You also need to check your computer for spyware. I would recommend staying away from Norton and McAfee. I can count on one hand the number of times a computer with up to date security software had a serious problem.I can't count the number of computers that had problems that started from someone downloading a screensaver, wallpaper, mouse cursor or smiley faces for their email. If you avoid those, you are ahead of the game. This stuff is pretty simple to prevent, but a royal mess to clean up. Oh, and nice FUD with this article.
