I am what most would consider to be a new adopter of Apple machines, less than 6 months, other than the obvious iPhone that is. It’s important to note though that this hasn’t been my first try, I attempted the conversion about 14 months ago and failed miserably. I found myself secretly getting my Windows fix without letting my colleagues know and that eventually led me into withdrawals and finally back on a Windows box, but I digress…
Then came the day I went full-time as an entrepreneur and my partners, being the security freaks that they are, banned me from using Window’s products on our network. My option was a distro of Linux, and as fun of an experience as that was, cough, I found the need for what I would consider a more robust UNIX based products – in enters Apple again.
It just so happens that I made the conversion just as the Flashback / Flashfake outbreak hit the streets. Oh you know, that little outbreak that got every one up in arms over Apple’s security policies and rumored to have over 600,000 MAC’s infected world-wide.
So naturally, my obvious reaction was, “WTF!!!!”
