Look, as long as MS pushes their own software as default programs out of the box, the vast majority of windows users will use them. Only about 10% of Windows users use Firefox instead of IE. And a far greater percentage use WMP and OE. And all of those programs allow hackers direct access into the operating system. That is a Windows security hole. If not, then why is it that Mac users remain almost completely safe when Windows users are so often beset with viruses and spyware? The final, obvious, word is that OS X is relatively secure while Windows is so very not... It's great that some people know to use non-MS programs and to use the right anti-spyware and -virus software but normal computer users don't have a clue about any of that. They expect that when they buy a computer it will have everything they need to run well out of the box (at least so much as a TV or a car). Apple provides that level of quality and service. Microsoft and PC hardware companies do not.
