WSJ.com - Personal Technology: Apple's Latest iMac Is Elegant, Powerful, Surprisingly Affordable "I am writing these words on the most elegant desktop computer I've ever used, a computer that is not only uncommonly beautiful but fast and powerful, virus-free and surprisingly affordable.
The iMac has some less tangible advantages, too. It has a better, more modern operating system than Windows XP. It comes with a free suite of photo, video and music programs that can't be matched on Windows. And it frees users from the worry and expense of battling viruses and spyware, because there has never been a successful virus targeting the Mac operating system, and there is little or no spyware for the Mac. The many thousands of viruses and spyware programs that afflict Windows can't run on, or harm, Macs.
The iMac G5 is another winner from Apple. It's a computer that's a real pleasure, not a hassle, to use."
Walt Mossberg fawns over Apple (again) and perpetuates his weird fiction about Mac viruses and spyware.
