Here we go again
Just me (Sir to you)
I had to laugh yesterday when I discovered that. I was in the middle of creating a patch disk for our Windows NT4.0 Embedded product to add MS's security patches up through MSBlaster. Oops! one more to include.
Based on past performance - no, you won't be done...
All of our boxes are patched already.
Where can I get this... oh wait! Nevermind, I have a Mac.
It's a pity your Mac doesn't have a spell checker.
Given my past experiences with Macs, I think I'd rather take a Windows machine with a virus.
Would guys prefer for Microsoft to find the vunerabilites and patch them, or just ignore them until a virus comes out?
And, Johnson, if everyone used a mac, you'd be having patches every week too. Don't think the boys and girls at Apple are any better avoiding exploits in their code then MS is.
not a mac user
MacOS's update system is pretty usable. As a general guess, one would be justified thinking Mac currently is more secure. Obviously, it has less cruft since it was made new. Networking was an early design target, and the FreeBSD core helps.
