  1. You mean Apple issues security updates in a routine manner. Instead of only when the public is about to find out about major holes in their system. How novel. Thing number 834,493,049 Micro$oft can learn from Apple.

  2. [qutote]”M$ releases patches only after major holes have been made public.[/qutoe]

    And then even 6 months later, and then some they say they can’t do anything about unitl Longhorn, which is waiting for the next line of Intel chips, which they can’t seem to get over their technological difficulties.

    I think as time goes by, Intel is going to shrink because they can’t make he jump to 64 bit chips, successful. As IBM and AMD already have.

    If YOU had a life threatening disease, wouldn’t you want people working for a cure? Loan your spare CPU and get involved, it’s easy

    As for this Apple patch… I’m tempted to just wait until they roll it into 10.3.3. But it’s nice that Apple doesn’t make you wait if you want it now.
