About time ! But as Joel indicates, better late than never ! I suspect that this welcome development is the result of certain recent changes in Apple's top-level management...
Next there will just a a line that says 'Security? its not our fault', blame Adobe and Oracle.
It's about time... There should be a line that says we don't get PC viruses we spread them like wildfire :P
It's a start, now if they'll just admit to the other false advertisements :P
Seriously, Mac OS X also experiences crashes and, like computers running Windows, need to be rebooted or reinstalled in extreme cases. No technology to this day is exempt from bugs or hardware failure. There's just less issues because Macs are used for less stressful things most of the time than PC.s
Like PC users are more likely to use the system for gaming, some Mac users game too but not as many. While some 3rd party programs can be just as buggy, if not more so, on a Mac than a Windows system. Like I had plenty of problems with Photoshop, Illustrator, QuarkXpress, InDesign, MS Office, etc. While some things OSX forces you to use the Terminal to fix and that's not something the average Apple user is suppose to have to do.
I can personally attest that having to fix programs via the Library/Preferences is just as annoying and time consuming as fixing Windows programs through the registry.
To be fair most don't need to access the Terminal as most don't use anything that would seriously stress the system or do something that most people wouldn't be doing with a Mac anyway but for some of us it's been just as annoying as Windows systems.
Especially when OSX first came out, I initially liked the previous Mac OS better when OSX first came out and it was buggy and the UI still needed fixing but it has come a long way but all these points still apply for what Apple tried to promote as strengths of these systems.
Though no OS is perfect and I find things I both like and dislike about all OS, but what always annoyed me about Apple was the advertising went a little too obviously over the top with stretching the truth.
Can't really fault Apple about this, better late than never. What's more annoying is the userbase. Hopefully this gets their attention and enforces safer browsing.
