The real reason people around me switched to Apple was the safety from viruses.
When that goes (not if, but when), Apple will become just another M$.
Macs are just as vulnerable as Windows PCs, it only seems like Windows is more vulnerable because most exploits on the web are written for windows systems... The reason for this is the market share of people online using windows.
If you are a hacker and you are writing an exploit would you write it for 20% of web surfers or would you write it for 70% of web surfers?
Obviously the intent of an exploit is to infect as many machines as possible so it only makes sense that you would target the largest group.
If Apple enjoyed the same market share as Windows they would endure the same amount of exploits targeting them.
