    That guy definitely has problems... :bonk2: :cuss:

    I'm just floored that anyone is actually trying to argue that Windows isn't full of security holes. It's an impossible argument to win...

    Right! Count how many tech service commercials you hear in a day. Curiously, none of them mention Apple.

    No, the problem is you confuse security holes in other Microsoft applications with security holes in Windows. I will bet you, that if you take a Windows installation, and never use Internet Explorer, Outlook, WMP, Messenger and even Office, you won't have any security issues.

    99% of the business world uses Microsoft Office. Excel is the one of the most often used software applications in the computer world. Your solution? Not use Office on a Windows OS?

    I can use Office with no problems or worries whatsoever on my Macintosh.

    Well, Office is the least likely application for security issues in the first place. But I would still suggest OpenOffice or StarOffice as alternatives.

    The biggest security problems for MS stems from Internet Explorer, Outlook and Messenger. WMP has had some issues as well, but I don't think they could actually compromise your system.
