Re: @Eadon - Phone Market

"There is definitely not a lot of profits in those "58%" wherever you magically took that number. I assume you actually meant 8%"

Magically, 75 - 17 = 58....so I meant 58, not 8

"And so now iPhone has the most profitable chunk of the phone market"

Are you sure? Last stats I saw, iPhone had about 17% market share (compare that to Android's 75%)...there's a lot of profit in that extra 58%

Re: Trojans

Granted, the majority of malware infections are on Windows, but that's just a weight of numbers thing....most prolific OS = greatest number of victims = most efficient way for malware authors to target the most people.

The same thing would have happened if Linux ever became the mass desktop OS of choice...but of course that's never happened, has it?

2013 - year of Linux on the desktop? Nah...probably not....
