What you are saying is not provable. This is because viruses don't have to give off signs you've got it... that is, in fact, the whole point behind virus protection. Tell me what's better.... being under the impression that your OS can't get a virus while having one and not knowing your OS can indeed get a virus, get a virus, find out you've got it, and then get it fixed. I never said you said "Mac is invulnerable". What I will say is the Mac has had viruses, they have been added to the Xprotext plist (which is NOT mentioned in the link you gave, go figure) and the Mac will get more viruses in the future. That's something to anticipate and count on rather than sit back in a false state of comfort.

Ok so you're saying Macs don't get viruses... but they get trojans just fine? You know I'm pretty sure I want my virus protection to catch trojans also.... lucky for me most good virus protection does. I don't care if it's a virus, torjan, spyware, potato or tomato.... if it's not supposed to be there it should not be there.... kind of like location tracking data... it's not a virus but I'd rather it not be on my system either.
"Mac OS X doesn’t get PC viruses. And its built-in defenses help keep you safe from other malware without the hassle of constant alerts and sweeps."
*Doesn't get viruses as in it doesn't get *PC* viruess - it gets Mac viruses.
*Constant alerts and sweeps in that it sweeps them under the xprotect rug. Is there anywhere in the mac to scan manually? No. Because mac don't need virus protection right?
I like / have Macs but I'm not blind to the fact it's just more code on x64 that can be exploited just the same. Don't even try to convince me they don't try the we don't get viruses sales pitch... the url you pointed to and this article is proof enough.
Little know that OS X comes wit built in virus protect with the Xprotect.plist... Not advertised because Apple want to keep the impression that Mac's don't get infected.
...and napster didn't pirate copyrighted mp3s. So if you don track you don't need... so take it off the device because your wasting storage space. Seriously you don't have to track.... that's because the people you let access it do. Do you get paid for that? Let me guess... it's a "Service".
Damn that's ironic.
But could they have been any worse? I always loved the way I hacked around for weeks trying to get 3D working after the drivers finally installed correctly and were apparently working correctly... all but 3D... and then to find out on some obscure link on google that the driver did not support it... but no mention to be found on ATI's site. But now that they are opensource these things can change! (Or at least be fscking documented correctly)

Your customers are not asking about it because they assumed you've handled that.
But they're not really your ideas are they? I mean, unless you invented the religion chances are you've just have a "time share" on your beliefs.... and I hate timeshares.
Pretty sure I'd lose my job for posting this kind of stuff on slashdot....
When a hard drive died on one of the servers at my startup... According to management that was definitely the biggest of 2009.
