Pinoy geek talking about everything under the sun

Mac users beware!

It is being touted that Apple’s shift to the Intel platform will only cater for more exploits. Although there is no denying the fact that no OS is 100% secure, the vulnerability of most modern Unix-based or Unix-like operating systems are far more secure than any of the Windows operating systems to date. I doubt, however, that it is more vulnerable because of the change in architecture – the OS is still the same.

Curious – BSD and Linux runs on Intel platforms. How many exploits are out there (for BSD and Linux) compared to Microsoft’s current crop of OS? Going the BSD, Linux, Mac OS X route is still the safest!
