    come on you had to know it was coming all you mac users claim your macs are safe like i said so many times in previous post the only reason you were safe is because hackers did not want to waste there time on making a virus because MACS only have 25% of the computer operating system market sense the new one came out using the UNIX kernal they just had to do it and its just a basic trojan virus made at the command line

    I don't think any of us mac people thought the machines were invincible...just entertained that most virus designers didn't bother.

    alot of mac users get big heads. it was just a matter of time before people started to come back to earth and realize that computers are computers, they get bugs, they get virii, etc.

    Yeah, I read about this a week ago. Shit's crazy. From what I read, it all started from a post on a Mac forum that claimed to have pics of the new, unreleased version of OSX.

    I'm about to get hooked up with a G4 from my dad- he needs some video editing help, and he's getting a G5, so I get the "old" Mac, I guess.

    I'm not going to give up on my Linux box, but I'm not gonna turn down a free G4, either....I just won't use it online.
