As for Windows' PC's? No major issues... Laptops are HP both still work, one 5 years old, this one is already out of warranty and now that I have A+, ummm I can fix it, its crashed once. But now its been backed up to Windows Home Server 2011.
My boy is using a 4 year old Dell with Traxtor DJ software.
Nothing against some Apple users but the fanboys are out of control.
Mostly OSX isn't as vulnerable because it doesn't have near the user base, so targeting it would be a waste of money.
That being said, there has been a memory protection feature built into Intel processors since the 286 came out called segmentation. If any operating system had used that to its full ability, most of the stack overflow exploits (which are what most exploits use) would have never been possible. In X64 mode, AMD completely eliminated segmentation, so there will never be a chance to use it again. Sad, really, that windows never took advantage of this.
