"so safe that viruses barely exists"

What a load of horse shit. Did Apple write this piece of trash?

Care to enlighten us on when an OS X box has ever been hit by a virus? You the wild, without requiring the user to enter the admin password for the box to install it?

Linux, and by extension OS X and Android, aren't impervious to malware...but it does require the user to consent to install it. "Barely" might actually overstate the risk.

Though I'll agree the article is rubbish...recommending installing MS Office!? $200 for an app that DOES create vulnerabilities to MS Office exploits, when you can get a better, more secure, app for free with NeoOffice.
