"Mac OS X is like living in a farmhouse in the country with no locks,
and Windows is living in a house with bars on the windows in the bad
part of town."
Quote by computer security researcher Charles Miller as reported in The Inquirer.

Of course even with Windows 7 the bars on the windows are pretty loose. As an IT engineer with many years experience and trained in Microsoft systems I am still amazed at how parochial these two camps fanboys can be. In my experience every operating system has heaps of vulnerabilities. Apple are just lucky that theyre a small target. Windows and Linux are often just as bad. Open source software however at least exposes all the code and makes it possible for everyone to examine and address vulnerabilities. to close... Yes, OSX has vulnerabilities. So be smart, use a firewall between your computers and the Internet, Use an AV product on your Mac, you may not ever be infected by something but you may protect a windows computer your email may one day travel to.
Just my 2 cents worth :-)
