    Of course, Mac OS X based on Unix, Windows not.  Linux is still safer than both.  What I like is how the anti-virus guys trying to spread the FUD.

    Unix was notoriously insecure back in the day.  Ever heard of a guy named Kevin Mitnick (free kevin, etc.)?  He went to jail several times for hacking Unix systems in the 70's and 80's.

    Just because its unix doesn't make it more secure.  Same goes for linux and OSX.
