Don't their ads say they are much more secure than other (read Microsoft) solutions?
What is this world coming to when you can't rely on the information that Steve Jobs tells us?
I say let there be another test of os security without exploiting third party appsAnd the contest is over.
The Vista system was next to go due to a 3'rd party exploit through Flash or Java or something. Per the grapevine, this vulnerability was available in both the Ubuntu and Vista systems but the hackers preferred the Vista machine so chose to employ the exploit on that machine instead of the Ubuntu box
The good news is that the OS's were not hacked. The bad news is, an out of the box Macintosh system is less secure than a Vista or Ubuntu system.
Vista and Ubuntu required 3'rd party vulnerabilities to show any potential flaws, with Vista dropping first. Good news for Microsoft Operating systems I guess.
As I mentioned before, I am craving the new holier-than-thou ads on websites and on tv touting Apple's superiority.

this however is not fair either since pc comes with bundles but I want to see how secure these os's are anyway
