The Sarah Silverman of operating systems

"Of course, of quick note, I can’t help but laugh at the Sarah Silverman of Operating Systems, Apple OSX *. Well it seems that this 'perfectly secure' OS, has been proven not to be as inpenetrable as fanboys believed. The only good thing about a Trojan horse being spread via a Macintosh is that you know it isn’t going to spread too fast, since it has to search so far and long to find another Mac user.

*For those that don’t get my analogy… Sarah Silverman and Apple are both apparently appealing to a small subset of people that are diehard fans. And in both cases, the reasons for such fandom seems to escape me."
