    OS fanboys are much funnier :D
    You can bring down almost every argument exposed in that article. That's the quality of the opinion of those so called experts.

    In theory, an OS with the normal users do not run as full admin as default (OS X, Linux and Vista) should have a LOT less problems with malware than those that don't, eg XP.
    But on the flip side malware writers will get smarter, rather just relying on the fact their malware will just run (simply needing a trick to get the user to run the malware), they are going to start exploiting bugs in the operating system and/OR apps that run that can give them the rights required to take over an entire machine.
