    If you or your company is involved in 3D modeling, idea sketching,
    product rendering, styling, sketch modeling or ergonomic of product
    design then we would like to hear from you. Our goal with the survey
    is to understand the no. of design engineers who also have needs for
    industrial design software. This brief, 6-question survey should take
    no more than 5 minutes for you to complete.

    I wouldn't dare say that myself as I would be flamed and for a long
    time people would simply ignore anything I said.

    But I will say, instead, that Microsoft dug its own literal grave by
    trying to supply an OS for everything & be everything to every partner
    or promoter in putting in ill-conceived features and security holes
    that are still blasting users up to this very week with the cursor
    exploit.

    Writing everything and trying to control everything with their own
    proprietary software and attempting to keep everyone away from all the
    family jewels simply has not worked, much as the king on the hill
    challenged virtually everyone else to try to do him in. In the end,
    all you have to do to get the king of the mountain is to starve him
    out, or simply go around him.

    Bill Gates & Steve Ballmer have served too long, and have lost their
    sense of what users are doing and going through with MS PCs. I doubt
    they really understand some of the problems they have created for
    their users. I can guarantee Ballmer doesn't install and maintain his
    own PC. He is too arrogant.

    I finally told family and business associates I am not going o fix
    Windows problems anymore. I've told them to get a MacMini for $599
    and hook up the existing LCD to it and GO TO TOWN, and I can help with
    that and so can the Apple Stores people at the "Genius Bar". Apple
    even offers one on one training under their ProCare program.

    Personal electronic devices had better be damn near trouble free for
    the average user. Steve Jobs realized that a long time back and most
    of us users have similarly realized it with the devices we have had
    that we couldn't figure out how to use properly (if they were usable).

  6. I've never had a mac, and I was curious about something.
    Is the Mac OS inherently less vulnerable to hackers, or is is simply that
    the smaller market
    share made it less of a target for hackers?

    thanks,
    bill

    The short answer is "Yes.", UNIX/Linux/Mac OS X are safer from mass
    market attacks. But that is only for the general strain of virus
    writers who want to sell mass market tools to attack Microsoft OSs.

    There are particular governments & corporations looking for ways to
    put in "back doors" on computers to steal other company's secrets, and
    they will try their best to develop those tools regardless of the OS &
    the time and cost to do it. The viruses serious spies create will try
    to be so "silent" that their presence and activity is entirely hidden
    if possible. Sony root kits anyone?

    The only "100% Virus Secure" computer is one which is not on a
    network. But those computers are still subject to various ploys by
    people "on the inside".

    With no floppy or tape drive. And a locked box & ports.
    Many places only the sysadmins are allowed portable
    tape drives .... anyone else found to have one on the
    premises gets fired on the spot.

    Then there are higher security levels, such as TEMPEST.

    The LONG answer is noted in the following article with the point that
    the basic underlieing structure and methods of programming are far
    better at eliminating holes in software in the first place.
