A Secure Panther

I like the way this guy (admittedly, he’s a Mac fan already) thinks!

I think Panther is going to bring about a major increase in the number of people switching to Macs from Windows. Let’s face it, Windows is a security nightmare. Seemingly every week there’s a new patch, a new worm or virus to worry about. People are fed up with Windows, and Macs have been getting a great buzz of publicity lately.


Could hackers write viruses for a Mac? Sure. But because Panther is based on the much harder to hack, industrial strength UNIX foundation, they’re not likely to have nearly the success they do with Windows worms.

This is a drum I’ve been hammering for a while. Good to see it in the mainstream media. :)
