I never thought I'd see the day, but there it is.  Good to see Cisco IOS, my OS of choice is still very low.  ;)

These reports are pointless. If people cared about software security, they wouldn't be using proprietary software to begin with.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Read that earlier this week, it refers to the applications, not the OS. Context fail.

cmdshift is right.  Mac OS is very solid, however many applications (specifically those not made by Apple) are not.
