    Think again.

    Macs, Viruses, and You

    It's not that your computer is invincible from worms and what not, its just that no one cared enough to waste their time with the tiny bits of Mac users out there... until now.

    Where do you get your numbers? I can't believe that mac has even 10% of the market, let alone "A Nice chunk"...

    macs are used for graphic design in alot of major fields. most trade show companies make their designs on macs using software such as form-Z, quark xpress, and creative suite/macromedia products.

    That's funny... Most graphical design companies I know use SunStations or something along those lines... :\ Sure some people use macs... But its mainly for the "trendy" advertising people... Of all of the Fortune 500 companies I visit, and all the major insurance companies & government institutions I work with, I think I have seen a TOTAL of 2 Macs at all of them combined... And those were iMacs used for "employee consoles" for surfing the internet on their lunch breaks...

    5% sounds believeable... 10 is stretching it.
