I'm not inviting a Mac vs. PC debate, all I'm saying is that if you want safe internet on April 1st, use a Mac.
This means I won't get to use my favorite PC's internet on that day though...
Well Mac users arnt completely safe, just from getting the worm, not sideeffects the worm could bring. Nobody knows what the point of the worm is, except that it disables many security sites, and it is programmed to get more instructions on April 1st. It could be anything, it could send spam to every computer in the world for all we know, after all it is 9 million+ computers affected.
