How many viruses ???
"Oh, and on another matter entirely, since there are currently no self-replicating malicious executables (or "viruses") for Mac OS X, it'll have to be a pretty dramatic rise before we're even close to the 150,000 estimated windows ones, won't it. Something tells me that's not market-share, it's just Windows is shit."
OK, so perhaps 150,000 viruses have been targetted at the Windows platform (past and present), but how many of those 150,000 would actually be able to execute on a properly patched modern machine ? I don't use any AV products on XP SP 3 and it's been ticking over just fine and dandy for the past 2 1/2 years. No P\/\/n1ng, no BSOD's, all my Windows programs run perfectly without having to fiddle about with WINE settings, and I've got drivers for every piece of hardware I can throw at it.
The secret ?
Tux, because I like using Ubuntu, as well. It's all good.
