Personally, I find this defeat the purpose of getting the Mac and I think i give up on the Mac Mini and stick with my PC to wait for the Longhorn, since there not much diff in term of security btw the Mac and XP now. Maybe Longhorn will be more secure than Mac in the future. (I dunno) . And ultimately, Mac is NOT CHEAP. Cool down guys!
    Longhorn more secure than mac OS? I dunno..... u'll be loooong in the tooth waiting for it and besides, which Microsoft OS / product is ever "secure"? :P

    well, its as secure as mac OS as long as nobody pick bones out of an egg. eg, the convenience of auto updates is great but people who want to be famous, exploits it & put a bomb in it. so if someone backside itchy & decided to put a bomb inside the OS X auto update as well, u will get a lot more frequent patches coming.

    Well, tell us about the Sasser worm that does not require any user 'help'.

    Debating about Mac vs Windows will never end.

    Check out this

    On the security side, it's just a matter who has better and faster reaction towards the newfound flaws. M$ has been notoriously known to be slow in releasing patches once a flaw is found. Apple has better luck that most of it's OS components are based on Open Source, hence the rapid fixes.

    sorry, this is not about wintel vs mac but just a mac security update note.

    nevertheless its a fun read. thx.

    i m not too sure about the rapid fix for macs, but the last one i read from some anti virus co., apple hasn't patch their iTunes bug for months. MS record for patch was 7 days for the Sasser worm (think its the RPC shutting computer down), if i remember correctly. but heck, if u dun plug into the net, none of these will affect u at all on either platform. but then again, lets be realistic, get a router with build in firewall & regular patches wud be more or less the solution for now.

    best of luck using your computer (whatever platform that maybe).
