See post 33. You folks got nothing. Admit it and move on. I'm sure if you dig long and hard enough you might find such a post by someone really clueless about how computer software works.

As I said in an earlier post on this very thread - No software is invulnerable. Some (OSX/Linux) is more resistant to such attacks than others (MS-Windows).

The sad thing is, you guys have to invent some mythical "all Macs are invulnerable" straw man to make the same point. I'm merely asking you to put up or shut up.  This claim is repeated on almost every thread, along with the insults against both Linux and Mac users. 

I suppose, though, it makes sense that someone who is a strong proponent of MS-Windows would be defensive, what with thousands of known and active threats to their operating system of choice.

As I've said before on other threads here, I don't even own a Mac. My MIL recently bought a Mac Mini so I guess I'll probably be able to beat off the keyboard someday to get some time to play with it. I just get tired of the insults and strawmen thrown at fellow freepers just because they choose something different that works well for them.

So you’re going with the...even if you find it the guy doesn’t know what he’s saying. Although earlier you said no such idiot exists.

Ahhh...I see you can’t lose with that type of “logic”. Plus all this proves is that since OS X has such a small user base the OS isn’t attacked as much as it would be if it was #1 by a huge margin.
