Windows fanboy alert!  ;D  Feel the passion! But I don't think a "You're [email protected]*ked, too!" argument wins any points, though.  ;)

Be honest, though. No thinking Mac user ever said Macs were impervious to attack. The argument was that the bad boys were too busy attacking the overwhelming majority of Windows users (the majority because Windows machines are the only ones sold in 99% of high street electrical shops, where it's easy to buy computers along with your irons and toasters) and didn't bother with the 5% minority. It was only a matter of time before that changed; the more popular Macs became, the more likely it was going to happen. This isn't the first threat to Macs by any means, either. Whatever machine you use, we all need to be careful what we download and open. Now let's link arms.

Unix fanboy actually, check all my previous IT related posts for Microsucks bashing.
And actually, you wouldn't believe how often i get the whole 'well, my mac is impervious to trojans and malware, just look at how often you see them for mac! haha' spiel from mac Lusers.
I always point out the fact that i have a trojan and worm collection on a harddisc that contains over 2 decades worth of malware for everything from DOS bootvirii to old MacOS backdoors.
Sometimes i demonstrate it on an old G5, always a heartstopper for the fanboys to see me remote control a G5 from a Winblows or Linux machine.
