MAC vs. Vista Security

Emblematic of much of what's wrong with security and yet comic as well. MAC pokes Vista's security in the eye in this advert.

Update: This entry is getting hit pretty hard. I suggest reading Matasano Chargen's well reasoned writings on OSX security and Apple security issues in general. For Vista security, I suggest checking out Joanna Rutkowska's recent writings. Vista is still an infant from a security review perspective with everybody cooing about new features and architecture, but we won't really know what it will be when it grows up a bit. Securosis has a well reasoned weigh in on this religious war as well.
