Further fun with Lefty ahead: A typo. I make a few. Obviously its Clbuttic Mac OS. No actually. I think it...
I think you mean 'conveniently'.

Yeah, I certainly am not making any claims about clbuttic Mac OS stability. I found it...
No actually. The only reason I dropped it was so as to leave something for folks to read at the source. I try not to quote entire articles. In this case I was coming very close in any case.

Scrutinizing as ever Lefty. I raked this argument over the coals, one more time, in a previous note in the thread. But let me blether on with hopefully some useful...
What I did do, which you 'conviently' neglected to read, was address exactly the first sentence of the first paragraph above in my commentary below the quotations from the article. Go back and look. I even outlined my own theories about why there are over 86x more malware per capita computer user for Windows than there are for Mac.
You might want to contribute to this thread, rather than ignorantly denigrate it, by adding your own theories as to why this is the case.
Certainly, I see no reason to accept the FUD that increasing purchases of Macs = successful malware on the order of what Windows suffers. It simply will not happen. buttertions to the contrary are outright wrong and will fail. And no, my saying that does not give you license to misquote me and say I am claiming that either (a) Mac OS X is 'bullet proof' or (b) that Mac OS X will not have successful malware, increasing with greater market share. I hope that is not too subtle for you.
As for phishing or other idenbreasty theft using social engineering, that has nothing to do with this thread.
Read my weekly thread "Mac Security: Weekly Summary" to see what action I personally take to help Mac users 'ensure their data will be protected' on their computers. My lectures around here about computer security are well known and require No-Doze.
