Microsoft is Stupid, Apple is Not

| If you take a look at the history of OS design by each company, it's pretty
| clear why this is so. Microsoft has historically made an unreliable, ugly,
| and highly insecure operating system based on its own spaghetti/Swiss cheese
| code. This is no secret to anyone who has followed the industry or even used
| Windows on a daily basis. If you are a Windows users you MUST have
| spyware/virus/malware prevention software or, sooner or later, your machine
| is going to get nailed.
| It isn't Microsoft bashing to say any of this, it's just the truth for
| Windows users each day of their computing lives.
