Can we put an end to this *logic* once and for all? This is an argument I have seen every time I read a thread about OS X and viruses.
  1. Windows has a large market share.
  2. Windows is targeted by virus writers.
  3. Therefore, if X has a large market share, then X will be targeted by virus writers.
  4. Therefore, if OS X had a large market share it would be targeted more by virus writers.
Please explain how you get from (1) and (2) to (3)? Furthermore, how does this say anything about something with a small market share?
