something like 70% of Windows 7 malware also runs on XP

You use that word... I don't think it means what you think it means. Also, the big fat goto fail fiasco shows you how much less secure OSX is than everyone thought. Just because it's based on something doesn't mean it hasn't been tainted by those that change it.

Like the other poster, I coded heavily for hours on end with no such issues you mentioned. Sounds like some serious PEBKAC. I remember installing Red Hat 5 and having to reinstall often because I had screwed up a driver trying to get it to work. Linux sound systems are still a big clusterfuck even today.
