With Macs getting ever more popular and the OS getting more advanced and widespread.. Is it only a matter of time before Viruses on a mac start becoming a problem?

I, like many of you reading this, really enjoy the fact that my Mac has been running smoothly and problem free since day one - which is alot more than I can say about my experiences with PC's. Not that PC's are inferior machines, let's not get into that debate!

But as my girlfriend's PC is currently yet again bugged with spyware and a new virus it leads me to think that will it always be this way - that macs will be free of these troubles?

I've heard that there's been a virus written for mac, but one virus is easy to stomp out - will there be more, possibly many more on horizon?
