    If you are asking what I think you are asking....then yeah, you would be better off just using your Mac for your photo work and your everyday internet use. I agree that it is just too much work to keep a Windows PC secure enough for internet use. That is why none of the Windows boxes I have are equipped with modems or NICs. Windows is good for some things, just not the internet.

    However, is that a indictment of Wintel and a Mac will not suffer the same?

    There are No real viruses for Mac, No ad-ware or spyware either which is why I use my Mac for the Internet & Work and the XP is only connected to upload & download Work Units for Folding@Home.

    If you use M$ Office or VPC on your Mac then those M$ programs can be affected by Word Macros / Viruses etc but the Mac itself isn't.
    I use NeoOfficeJ (FreeWare) instead of M$ Office, so there's No M$ software on my Mac, Sorry, maybe IE is still around somewhere :miner: Never use it.
