No matter what people say. A lot of negative mac myths around everywhere mostly by people who haven't serious used OSX as an operation system.
Trojans are possible on a mac. But these things happen when the USER clicks on stuff he doesn't know. In the end it's USER Error most of the
Security with passwords and wireless internet is important always!!
For companies, the security options on OSX are endless.
I've used windows from DOS to Vista.
You buy a mac for OSX. That's the reason. It's much more secure and stable without any extra tools. It's compatible with almost any external
device out of the box.
Windows always needs extra tools to keep it stable and safe.
I can install 300 applications on a mac without the Operating system getting slower.
I can have 50 applications open on OSX without slowing down the system.
Try that on Windows , it's simply a no go.
I do Audio production, Video production, 3D animation, Mail, internet, on ONE machine , ONE partition for years now on OSX. I can run
windows/linux/Dos/ Windows 3.11 (
) if i have to through virtualisation. ( which is ultra fast )
I'm always connected to the internet.
The term 'stand alone' is a typical windows term. Especially for people who use windows for audio or video type applications. Keep it from the
internet or it will die soon!!
On OSX i have NO scanners, no extra tools. NO crap that slows down the system
OSX is not flawless but you really CAN'T compare it to Windows. It's simply superior.
I'm saying this after using windows for 12 years now from Dos to Vista.
I'm not subjective or an Apple fan boy. It's just better from my own experience.
As well as for non technical users as hardcore programmers.
