I've just read this piece of new & was quite surprise to find that Vista more secure than mac. anyway here's a snip from the article:

I have found the code quality, at least in terms of security, to be much better overall in Vista than Mac OS X 10.4. It is obvious from observing affected components in security patches that Microsoft’s Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) has resulted in fewer vulnerabilities in newly-written code. I hope that more software vendors follow their lead in developing proactive software security development methodologies.


the whole article can be found here from macworld:

I think the problem is not so much that Vista is more secure or not, but rather it is a much bigger and more attractive target for hackers, thus, even if it is more secure, there would probably be more cases of security exploits and viruses than macs...

The thing is, yes, Vista is more secure than the mac.
(Btw, I'm a mac user).

But, that is if you switch on the security options.
(Which by the way, is the one that pops up almost every time you use some application)
So, many users switch it off because it's irritating.

And that makes Vista not much better than XP Svc Pack 2.
The mac just works.

Everyone will go and buy when XP is no longer on sales.

Do you have a choice? :devil:

Only a PC user will say Vista is more secure than MAC OSX...................and Leopard OSX is not even out yet.

Only a PC user will announce their system is more reliable.........lol.....:bsmilie:

MAC users.......any updates........I guess not. Any announcement? Do we need to?:devil:

who cares if Vista is more secure or not. I'm happy to be using Mac OS now after i had overcomed the initial struggle when migrating from PC to Mac.
