Sep 14th 2007 4:37AM I completely disagree, the more mac users there are will not in any way affect the number of trojans/virus's appearing on it, the same as if we all switched to linux, things would not suddenly get worse on that platform.
The key is twofold here. Windows users 99% of the time run as root, making owning a box very easy.
Linux/Mac/Solaris/Freebsd 99% of the time DONT run as root.
So even if Mac had 90% of the market and Windows 10%, the window of opportunity would still only grow from 0.9% to 9%.
Plus with a mac, you can always run a wow account, which only has wow on it, so even if one of your other users on the machine gets owned, it still does not affect your main accounts.
Windows great for playing games such as hunt the virus and chase the adware.
Get a Mac or Linux if you have the choice for getting any real work done.
