WSJ: If you're tired of Windows viruses, consider a Mac
October 23, 2003 - 10:08 EDT The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg writes: "After growing easier to use for several years, Windows PCs have taken a giant step backward because they are so insecure. Windows is riddled with security flaws, and new ones turn up regularly. It is increasingly susceptible to all kinds of viruses, malicious Trojan horse programs and spyware. As a result, Windows users have been forced to spend more of their time and money supporting their computers... But for consumers and small businesses, there's a simple way out of this endless morass: Buy an Apple Macintosh computer. There are no viruses on the Macintosh's excellent two-year-old operating system, called OS X. And the Mac is a terrific computer -- as good as, or better than, Windows for the typical computing tasks important to mainstream users. Not everybody can, or should, jump to Apple. But if you're tired of the virus wars, the Mac can be an island of serenity."

My Comments: I think we're going to see more articles like this in the near and distant future.
