Those of us "cool" Mac people whom the new PC commercials strangely make fun of are not worried at all about this worm.

Someday all y'all PC users will learn. You love your iPods and iPhones... what makes you think an iBook or iMac are any less amazing?

What is up with the Vista bashers? Been running it for 2 years, it came with my new PC, and have had no problems. In fact, I love it especially its speed.

I own a Mac and PC. While Macs are great, user friendly, less prone to viruses and worms, crash WAY WAY less often than windows based PCs, there are some drawbacks. One is if you can only swing one computer you may want a PC for ease of use in the business world where everything, every program, is PC based. Also, Mac price is Mac price, there are no deals to be had. Not everyone can spend that much money on one computer. Personally I would use just Mac, but by having a PC laptop makes my work 100% easier.

The new Macs all run on Intel processors. And with VMWare Fusion software, that limitation has evaporated. Provided you have enough RAM and hard drive space, you can run Mac OS X, Windows XP and Vista simultaneously, and drag-n-drop between desktops.(Linux too, if you prefer.)

All on the same computer. So I consider my Mac purchase as getting multiple platforms in the same box.
