Microsoft: get a Mac if you want to be secure!

From The Fishbowl:

“Microsoft, on their front page, are offering “5 Steps to Improve Your Online Security”, decorated with a photo of a woman typing on a laptop.

In the stock photograph from which Microsoft’s designers ever-so-carefully cropped the image, we learn the real advice Microsoft is subliminally offering its customers. Want to be secure online?

Get a Mac. (The woman in the picture is using a Powerbook!)

That’s the first in a long line of Microsoft security recommendations that I can fully support, having been asked to clean up several XP machines in the last weeks…

Edit: Wait a minute – haven’t I seen something like that happen before?
