Wahahahaha!!! Yesterday I saw a client of mine with a Mac that REFUSED to read my converted video file, no matter what I try. Macintos.

uhm all you need to do is install perian and it all works, try getting a fresh windows install to play any file and it will refuse...

Well I don't know - I switched across to Mac OSX about 5 years ago. In all those 5 years, I have had absolutely ZERO virus/whatever problems, and I don't run any other anti virus programs or whatever.

Four Mac OSX devices here - two iMacs 24 " and 27 " quad core, and two MacBook Pro laptops, both 15 ". Not one iota of a problem.....zero/zilch/nada/lutho (zulu). And my Apple Macs are connected to the internet 24/7.

Oh....I forgot, and I have a quad core Apple MacMini....no problems in the slightest there either.

Maybe the guys having problems are permanently hooked into the porn sites :D:D

Isn't that most the Macs out there?

I thought Apple cracked the phone and tablet market, but their desktops market is tiny?

They sold 5.2million in the last quarter alone.

I think all in all. I would still prefer macs on my network than MS machines when it comes to security and stability.
